HOSA State Leadership Conference needs judges for March 7-9.


The South Carolina HOSA State Leadership Conference is held at the North Charleston Convention Center March 7-9, 2018.

At the conference we offer a variety of 56 different competitive events including Sports Medicine, Biomedical Lab Science, knowledge tests (Nutrition, Transcultural Health, Medical Math, etc.), HOSA Bowl, Researched Persuasive Writing & Speaking, Medical Assisting, Community Awareness, Medical Innovation, Career Health Display, and many more. We need 2-3 judges per event (other than knowledge tests).


As a judge you will be given a rubric to score the competitors and it is imperative that you are familiar with the guidelines and expectations for the competitors before the event. Here is the link to all the guidelines of all the events so that you can familiarize yourself and have a better understanding of what to expect for that specific event:
