Q & A SLC Questions
Q: What is the format for the Forensic Science and Creative Problems Solving Live Event?
A: There was a misinterpretation by the state advisor regarding Round Two of the Forensic Science and Creative Problem Solving competitions. The top ten teams will not be on a live zoom. Instead the top ten team members will receive the secret scenario/problem via email on the date and time indicated on the competitive event schedule, One team member must upload the team's response to Tallo.

Q: When are all the written tests being held?
A: All written tests are held on April 12th between 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM.

Q: Do advisors need to pay the Virtual SLC registration fee?
A: When we hold in person events advisors and chapters are required to pay the registration fee. We are encouraging advsiors to register for the SLC and pay the $40 fee as a way to support Ohio HOSA. Advisors will receive a tee shirt as a thank you for registering.
