Competitive Events Information
Fifty-seven competitive events will be conducted in six program areas
at three levels at the International Leadership Conference. HOSA
competitive events are conducted as incentives for HSE students
to be recognized for achievement related to career and leadership
development. Competitive events are designed to complement
the health and biomedical science education programs through
application of the instruction received. This practical experience
assists the HOSA member in developing the knowledge, skills, and
attitude required to deliver quality health care.
Orientation and Scheduling
Competitor Orientations will take place directly before the round one
event. There will not be time between the Orientation and the start of
the event to go back to your room. Competitors will need to bring all
items for their competition to the orientation and be properly dressed,
as their appointment time may be immediately following orientation.
Random Appointment Assignment
If you are in an event with appointment times, this means the first
appointment times will be immediately following the conclusion of
orientation. You may be the first to report, or you may be two hours
later, depending on your random appointment assignment. You
should prepare for both possibilities.
Event Personnel Meeting Timing
Event Personnel Meetings will take place directly before the round one
event starts, instead of at an earlier time or day. There will be a second
Event Personnel Meeting that takes place directly before the round
two portion of the event, if applicable.
Competitive Event Judges
Competitive event judges are asked to arrive to the judge orientation
for their event. It should be remembered that event judges are “very
important persons” at the International Leadership Conference.
When opportunities arise, please tell these volunteers how much we
appreciate the contributions they are making to HOSA and the 2016
International Leadership Conference.

who advance to round two. These round two Information sheets are
one-page documents that explain all the details of round two, what to
expect, where to go, and any special notes needed.
