HOSA Creates STEM-based Video Event

HOSA students take notice...In collaboration with South Dakota Biotech and Sanford Research, South Dakota HOSA has created a new competitive event entitled "Biotechnology Video" event. This event is a teamwork event in which 2-3 members will collaborate in creating a video involving the inquiry:"What does STEM mean to you?"

To possibly supplement your information, you may approach a local biotech company to see how they are using STEM in their business. The video you create wil be 60-120-second in length. Awards will be given at the 2019 SD HOSA State Leadership Conference.

Please pay attention to the to the following:

  • Some companies may not want video shot as much of the work is proprietary
  • Students should conduct interviews during business hours
  • Students should give the business two weeks notice to schedule and interview
  • Students should keep interview and video to an hour or less during the visit

Prize money is listed below:

1st  Place: $750

2nd Place: $500

3rd Place: $250
