Community Awareness is a Teamwork Event that provides HOSA members with the opportunity to educate their community about one health and/or safety related issue of local, state and/or national interest. Teams of 2-4 members plan a community campaign surrounding a selected topic that will impact the community as a whole. Teams develop a portfolio that documents and explains the community campaign and activities. The team presents the community campaign to a panel of judges, using the portfolio as documentation of their accomplishments. This event aims to inspire members to be proactive future health professionals and promote community awareness of health related issues.
Please be sure to check the short sheet guidelines which tell you how to prepare for these events, as well as, the Montana Gotta Have It list which informs you of the equipment you are responsible for bringing to SLC.
The completed portfolio must be submitted to Montana HOSA as a single pdf document by March 26, 2021 by one competitor on the team. NEW FOR VIRTUAL SLC: Competitors will also record a video of the 5 minute presentation to the judges and upload by the March 26th deadline. Competitors should continue to follow all guidelines required of the presentation including proper dress and allowable props. Please reach out to Montana HOSA with any questions. Tips for how to record and instructions for uploads coming soon.
