Welcome to the National History Day in Missouri State Contest!

The State Historical Society of Missouri is taking proactive steps to address the concerns of the COVID-19 virus. In coordination with our campus partners and per guidance from the CDC, the National History Day in Missouri state contest will be held as a virtual contest this year. We will not be hosting an in-person contest on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia. We feel this is the best option due to the rapidly changing situation of this virus outbreak, the closures of many institutions, and the recommendation for social distancing. 

Please continue to register for the state contest and consider signing up to be a virtual judge! Thank you for your understanding and support of our students and teachers who work hard to prepare for the annual contest.

To register, please log in with the same username and password that you used for regional competition. You will verify your information, make any updates, and check out. 

Registration closes on April 3 and all upload materials are due at the time. 

The registration fee is $25/student and must be received in order for registration to be complete. All students who are linked to a project must complete registration. 

Virtual Contest Instructions (please review):

Interviews

We understand that this may be a disappointment for some students, but we will not have interviews at the Virtual State Contest this year. The technical capacity required of students and judges will not allow for this component. The actual evaluation of the projects won’t change, since projects should be able to stand on research merit alone.

 

Papers

Papers should be submitted through the online registration system when a student registers for the state competition. No further action is needed (once registration is complete) from students to participate in the Virtual State Contest.

 

Websites

Website Keys should already be submitted through online registration system when a student registers for the state competition. Once this is done, no further action is needed from students to participate in the Virtual State Contest.

 

Exhibits, Documentaries, and Performances

Additional Action Needed: All students in these categories must complete an additional materials upload in order to participate in the Virtual State Contest. If a student does not complete the additional requirements by the deadline, we will assume they do not want to participate and drop them from the contest.

Your final submission may not be edited in any way; no zooming or special effects are permitted. The recording should be as if a judge is sitting and watching your presentation. The quality of iPhone and iPad recordings should be fine as long as you try to minimize background noise. IF YOU ARE IN A GROUP PERFORMANCE AND DO NOT HAVE A RECORDING OF YOUR PERFORMANCE-DO NOT RISK GETTING TOGETHER TO FILM. INSTEAD, UPLOAD YOUR SCRIPT.

Please also provide a script of your performance. This can be written out on a WORD document and saved as a PDF. If we get one script, the whole category will be evaluated by scripts for fairness.

If saving to Google Drive, make sure to change the sharing settings so that it is viewable by anyone with the link - and viewable by someone outside of your school district. Save this URL.
