To assist entrants with the registration process, the NHD has provided an online registration video tutorial at http://nhdsupport.acuweb.com/public/.

Website and Paper judging is scheduled to begin on February 8, 2013. This means students will be automatically locked out of their websites and papers will need to be submitted to Gail Emrie on this date. Papers must be delivered to the Missouri State University History Office by February 7th. The top three entries in these categories are selected and compete through interviews on February 22nd.
Should you have any question or concerns, you may contact the Region 7 Coordinator, Gail Emrie at 417 836 5915 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
