Congratulations and thank you for sponsoring students advancing to the Arkansas State History Day Contest!


Your Teacher Account Lasts All Year

Because you already created a Teacher Account for your NHD Regional Contest, you will not need to create another teacher account.  That account is good for one whole contest year.  Once your student has advanced from the Regional contest to the State contest, your NHD Teacher Account will automatically transfer to this State contest platform.  Once that transfer has taken place, you will be able to view your student list at any time by logging into this contest platform. 

Judge Evaluations 

Students and teachers will be able to view and download the judges' evaluation forms directly from this contest platform after the State contest is finished and the award ceremony has been held.  

Need help for issues related to registration, student project information, or any other technical issues with this contest portal?  Call us at 501-450-3158  or email us at nhdar@uca.edu Judy Huff and Koria Robinson are working together to respond quickly to offer technical help.  Your students are also welcome to reach out to us.  For other questions, please contact Dr. Story Matkin-Rawn Forrester at slmatkinrawn@uca.edu or 501-444-2357
