Historical papers
should be emailed to me (mhdsouthshore@gmail.com) as follows:

  • Papers must be submitted no later than February 18 at 11:59 pm.

  • Each paper must be submitted as a single, complete entry (e.g. do NOT email the cover page, body of paper, and bibliography as separate files. All elements of each paper should all be included in one document.
  • Please ask students to name their paper documents with their last name, division, paper. For example: CardulloSRpaper.pdf.

Websites MUST be created using the nhd.weebly portal! The process is easy and free. Websites created at other locations will not be entered in the competition!

  • Websites must be submitted no later than February 18 at 11:59 pm
  • Your URL should look something like http://37408014.nhd.weebly.com. Each NHD website has an automatically generated identification number that is 8 numbers long.  You should NOT have any letters in your URL, nor should you be able to pick what goes into your URL.
  • If the address between http:// and nhd.weebly.com is not a string of 8 numbers, but instead asks you to create a custom URL like http://lincolndouglassdebates.weebly.com, you can easily convert it.
  • If you registered for a regular Weebly account you can convert it to a NHD Weebly automatically. Simply use your Username and Password to login through http://nhd.weebly.com and click the "Convert" button when prompted. This will switch your Weebly account over to a NHD Weebly and assign you a new URL with the correct 8-digit format.
  • PUBLISH YOUR WEBPAGE!  When you've finished making your edits for the day, do not forget to publish your website! You will find the Publish Now button in the upper right-hand corner. Remember to publish your website each and every time you edit your site - and make sure you've published your site before your local contest lock-out dates, or you may be disqualified from participating in the contest!
