South Dakota HOSA-Future Health Professionals will host its 10th annual State Leadership Conference on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12, 2024 at the Sanford Pentagon, Sanford Fieldhouse, USD Sioux Falls Campus and Southeast Technical College.
We are planning for 800+ attendees come and compete in over 55 events, attend 40 breakout sessions, and engage in 12 tours. Members also partake in a robust college/career fair, keynote speaker, banquet and grand award session.
Attending SD HOSA's State Leadership Conference will provide students the learning opportunities, competitions, academic symposiums, and educational tours needed to progress toward a future health career.
Students compete for awards and scholarships with an opportunity to earn their way to HOSA's International Leadership Conference in June. HOSA members may compete in THREE competitive events. However, TWO may be on site. Some events require an uploading projects. Other information regarding competition is located on this page as well.
