Competitive Event Judges
Professionals who wish to spread the awareness of the health profession and leadership skills are invited to get involved in HOSA! We are actively recruiting volunteers to serve as judges for HOSA's International Leadership Conference. We need judges for our HOSA Competitive Events. The events are designed to motivate HOSA members to study, work hard, and achieve a high standard of excellence in a variety of leadership and skill disciplines. We will have 8,100+ competitors in 60 different events which means we need 400 judges to evaluate student performance. For more information, watch the Judge Information Video.
