STUDENTS: NEW THIS YEAR: YOUR TEACHER MUST REGISTER BEFORE YOU DO. REGISTRATION opens on December 18, 2019. The REGISTRATION DEADLINE is MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2020, at 5 pm.
Student Registration: Click here to register. Each student registering for an individual entry should register separately. For group entries, there are two options:
1. If the members are all present, or if one person has all the required information for all members: One student registers first. At the end of that student's registration, there will be a red button on the screen, "Register Next Team Member." Fill out the information for the second student in the group, and continue following that pattern until all group members are registered.
2. If the members are not together, or no one has all the information needed: One student registers first. He or she will receive a "key"--a code, really--that they can then share with other students in the group. The other students enter their personal information when they register and enter the "key" to be linked to the existing team project.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT MORE INFORMATION IS REQUIRED THIS YEAR THAN IN YEARS PAST, DUE TO STATE REQUIREMENTS.
For each entry: project title, category (documentary, exhibit, paper, performance, or website), whether it is group or individual, school, and teacher.
For each student: name, home address, a working email address that accepts emails from outside the school system (this can be the parent/guardian's email or the teacher's email), the name of a parent/guardian, parent/guardian's email (if available), and a phone number for the parent/guardian.
PAPERS (in the paper category, not the process papers required in other categories) AND WEBSITES: Judges read/view these ahead of time and then interview you about them at the contest. You need to submit a copy of your paper or, for websites, the URL of your website (created on the NHD website hosting site, https://www.nhd.org/nhdwebcentral) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 21, at 5 p.m.
Students may pick up their registration packets--which will include the time and place of their entry being judged--by the elevators on the first floor of the GAC starting at 8 a.m. Judging starts at 9, so students should pick up their packets before then.
Teacher Registration: Click here to register. TEACHERS MUST REGISTER BEFORE THEIR STUDENTS WILL BE ALLOWED TO REGISTER. We have not asked teachers to register for our contest in the past, but this year, we are being required by the state program to use the NHD registration system and this requires teacher registration before student registration. There will be teacher packets available for all teachers who indicate they plan to attend the contest. Teacher packets may be picked up by the elevators on the first floor of the GAC starting at 8 a.m.
Judges, please go to the Judges' tab above to find registration and other information. Judges should report to the Judges' Room--classroom 117 on the first floor of the GAC--by 8:15 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided..
