In March, approximately 500 high school students from across Nebraska will converge on the Nebraska Medicine and UNMC campus in Midtown Omaha for a yearly HOSA state competition and leadership conference. HOSA is an extracurricular organization for students who are interested in becoming future health professionals. Nebraska Medicine and UNMC are top sponsors for this year's event.

As part of the two-day event, scheduled for March 18 and 19, students will participate in nearly 50 competitive events including math, forensic science, nursing assisting and public speaking. To ensure everything runs smoothly, more than 100 volunteers are being recruited to serve as judges, timekeepers and event hosts. Most of these events require no specific background knowledge or training.

If you're interested in helping with the events, you may sign up to volunteer at this link. As you sign-up for specific events, be aware that the scheduled times may change slightly depending on the number of competitors in each event. A member of HOSA's competitive events team will contact you with more information by the end of February. You can learn more about each event here.

For additional questions, please feel free to contact Patient & Community Engagement Liaison Haley Armstrong at (402) 552-2249 or by email.
