National HOSA has officially partnered with STEMPremier. If you visit the competitive event guidelines page on the national HOSA website, at the very bottom, they have loaded an outline of what they are doing with STEMPremier. STEMPremier is a badging site that provides scholarship opportunities, networking opportunities – and now – a place for some of HOSA’s competitive events! Please take important note – Nevada HOSA is using one, and only one feature in STEMPremier this year for competitive events. For Job Seeking Skills and Interviewing Skills, students will need to upload their cover letter and resume. This is the ONLY event that Nevada HOSA is using STEMPremier for this year. Students that advance to ILC will need to be ready for STEMPremier to be part of eight total competitive events.
We encourage you to have a chapter meeting activity of all students creating a STEMPremier Profile as soon as possible so that they can familiarize themselves with the platform and functionality – as well as take advantage of the benefits. As we progress through the year, there will be many more opportunities throughout the year. At the current moment, National HOSA is working to identify what badges students can earn – member, SLC attendee, competitor, and more. No badges are official yet – but they are in the works! When we get closer to the winter, I will host a webinar for advisors to see exactly how the upload process will work.
