Time to register for state: On Friday afternoon, March 27 regional contest winners were advanced to the state contest and the projects and files they had linked advanced with them. Go to nhdmo.org/registration  and create a log in and password to register for NHD-MO state contest. Be sure to mind the deadline's in Danielle's memo (on our contest site: but projects can still be edited via the state History Day.

Natonals: Please see this new message from NHD Headquarters about the national contest in June.

Who to Contact with Questions: Please contact NHDMO state cooridnator Danielle Greigo, griegod@shsmo.org with questions about the state contest. See her memo on the virtual state contest: National History Day in Missouri 2020 Virtual State Contest Information_Final .pdf.  Please contact Courtney Kisat (ckisat@emo.edu) with questions about the regional contest.

Trophies: If you have a first place or special prize winner, please send Tom Hecht at SEMO Specialties (tom@semospec.com) with the preferred mailing address. For teams, I think the teacher usually displays these in the classroom rather than decide which student should get it. Tom can mail the trophies to your or your student's home address this year.

Discussion with Judges: Students, please be prepared to answer judges’ questions about the content and development of your entry and to explain the design, research, and creation of your entry. Judges need to know that your entry is the result of your own work. However, you may not give a formal, prepared introduction, narration, or conclusion. Let the judges’ questions guide the interview. Ultimately, your entry should be able to stand on its own without any additional comments from you.

- Students should bring a copy of their annotated bibliography and any materials specific to their category to the contest.

- If your project is a documentary, please post it on YouTube or another cloud-based service in case your flash drive does not work.

 

Students must adhere to the University's Code of Conduct while on campus. Please keep your voice low and avoid disrupting the classes in session on March 24. 

Below are some resources for your project:
