BRAND DESIGN CONCEPT CONTEST
The international HOSA theme for the 2022-2023 school year was announced as “Beyond All Limits”! Leaders recognize organizations can be blocked by boundaries — many are mental barriers members themselves create. Barriers are justified with weak excuses such as “no time,” “no funding,” or “no talent.” Therefore, there is a need to operate outside the self-imposed boundaries. Impossible is a state of mind. Many things we think are impossible are, in fact, possible. Leaders must investigate challenges to determine if obstacles can be overcome. Leaders who think outside the box and push beyond their limits achieve the impossible. Even if something has not been done before, there is no rule that says it cannot be done. There are many examples of “first times” like, discovering penicillin; transplanting a kidney; mapping the human genome, and so many more. Someone decided something impossible can be done and did it! HOSA members and sponsors can join together to move “Beyond All Limits” to achieve the goal. In the graphic, nine HOSA members organized and determined how to move members up the mountain so that five of the members could summit the mountain and celebrate their ability to achieve “Beyond All Limits” together.
Affiliated members had an opportunity to submit a brand design concept for both the 2022-2023 t-shirt and lapel pin to be displayed and distributed at the Missouri HOSA State Leadership Conference. Design submissions were voted on at the Missouri HOSA 2022 Fall Leadership Conference on November 3-4, 2022, by the registered participants. Submissions were encouraged to incorporate this year’s HOSA Theme.
Missouri HOSA is excited to announce that the submission from Lisa Hang from Mehlville High School was chosen as the winner of this year’s t-shirt and lapel pin design!
