Important Contest Announcements for 2022 Regional Contests

This year, 我们正在努力重建并加强全州国民健康保险的参与, we will be holding two regional contests and one state contest (see Contest Info page for details). We anticipate that all contests will be held in person, with accommodations available for those who need them. 

Once we have a better sense of participation numbers, 我们将分配学校参加他们特定的区域竞赛. We will use the two-contest model for 2022, and re-evaluate for 2023 based on participation next year. 

我们计划亲自举办2022年国家历史日比赛. However, in case health guidelines change 我们还要求学生提交几乎所有五个项目类别的材料 in advance of competition day. Please see our virtual project page for details and instructions.

2022年竞赛季NHDWebCentral的重要公告

在过去的几年里,NHD国民对NHDWebCentral网站建设做出了重大的改变, improving its usability and providing videos, FAQs, 以及如何使用他们的平台建立网站的详细指南. However, 我们知道,许多不熟悉这个平台的学生仍然觉得它很有挑战性, 我们不希望网站建设者成为参与的障碍.
 
To make NHD as accessible as possible, 我们已经决定2022年的地区和州比赛, 我们将接受在谷歌或微软等替代平台上创建的NHD网站, as long as students use their school account to do so. 然后,我们将为任何需要将他们的网站转移到NHDWebCentral的学生提供帮助, which is the only platform accepted at Nationals.
