HOSA SLC Email #8

Good Morning,

Even though today should have been Conference Registration, beginning of competitive events, and Opening Session,  OK HOSA SLC spirit will NOT let COVID 19 shut us down!

I held two Zoom  meetings last week to review the HOSA SLC updates.  I know that many of your joined me but I wanted to review what was discussed.

  1.  The eight secondary/postsecondary events which still needed submissions or tests have been cancelled.  These events include Extemp Health Poster, Extemp Writing, Health Career Display, Prepared Speaking, Speaking Skills, Public Health, Life Support Skills, and Personal Care.  These events were cancelled due to an administration directive.
  2. All other events will have winners. Please refer to the first page of the document linked to HOSA SLC #6.
  3. All chapters/conference registrants will receive the conference polo, NPCF Walk shirts (if ordered), recognition certificates, recognition ribbons, Star Chapter plaques, and competitive event medals (if applicable).  Your “HOSA BOX” will be delivered TBD… may be July or August but you will receive a “HOSA BOX”.  When you can and if you are planning a “Class Celebration”, please let me know the date so I can make sure you have your “HOSA BOX” in time which will allow you the opportunity to hand out SLC items to your students.
  4. Since conference registrants will receive these items and the fact that there were some pre conference expenses, I do not anticipate any conference registration refunds.
  5. Advisors asked for the Extemp Poster, Extemp Writing, and Prepared Speaking/Speaking Skills topics so that you can use them as assignments within your Continuous Distance Learning plan.
    • Extemp Poster-Vaping: Know the Risks
    • Extemp Writing-Video Gaming: A Mental Health Problem
    • Prepared Speaking/Speaking Skills- “ Towards Tomorrow”.  
  6.  SLC Walk shirts-I still have some Walk shirts available for $10…..small (8), XLarge (6), and 2XLarge (6).  Please let me know if you or your students would like one.
  7. Your state officer team has worked very hard is planning some great activities to keep the student involved and anticipating the announcement of the competitive event winners.  Our hope is that you will incorporate some of these activities in your Continuous Distance Learning Lesson Plans. The final calendar and activity descriptions is attached to this email.

    • Design the 2020 FLC T-Shirt
    • OK HOSA Spirit Days
