Welcome Students!

Thanks for participating in Utah History Day! 

For information about the Salt Lake Regional Contest (where, when, time, directions, etc.) see the Contest Information section. 


FAQ

Can I participate if my school does not?  YES!  Students may complete a project and enter their local regional competition on their own. No teacher sponsor is necessary to compete as an independent student.

Who can participate? Any Utah student in grades 4-12. Utah History Day is open to children who attend public, private, parochial, charter, online, or home schools.

What does it cost?  It’s FREE!  There is no registration fee for regional or state competitions in Utah.


Special Awards

Check back often for updates to available self-nominated and judge-nominated special awards!

"Special Awards" are special recognitions given to projects that do not advance to the next contest level, but do excel in their topic, presentation, analysis or other factors. We believe these projects and the students that put in dedicated effort to them deserve singular acknowledgement. These awards may be monetary or otherwise. For some awards, students may self-nominate their project for special judging during registration. Others are nominated by their interviewing judges on the day of the contest. 

Announcing a Special WWI award

As part of the centennial recognition of World War I, the Utah WWI Commission is sponsoring cash prizes for outstanding History Day projects relating to the Great War.  Winners will be selected at Utah's ten regional History Day competitions held in February-March, as well as at the state contest held in April.   
 
Projects must relate directly to World War I and may range from the war in Europe to its impacts on the home front, such as rationing, mining, industry, Liberty Bond drives, German POWs, conscientious objectors, politics, etc. Winning projects will demonstrate research, clarity, thought, and some originality.  Relevant projects from all categories (documentary, paper, website, exhibit, and performance) will be considered.

Registration Instructions

Teachers must create their registration accounts first. Once they have done so, their students can create their student accounts and add their entry information.

Registration details and entries can be edited after registration by the student, their teacher, or an administrator by logging in to their contest profile and clicking "My Profile" under the student's first name in the top right. Changes to linked group projects (project name, description, and any papers and weebly links only) appear across all entries. 

Note About System Emails

In the new registration system, users will need to accept emails from NoReply@zfairs.com in order to receive the system’s automatic and/or admin-generated email messages.  If students or teachers are using school email addresses, they may need to check with their IT departments to make sure they can receive outside messages.  They may also request that emails coming from the NHD registration system be approved to be received, or “white listed.”  If you have questions on this, please contact your contest coordinator.

Creating Group Entries

Students may create and link group entries 3 ways: using 1 computer, using multiple computers and team key URL, or manually entering the team key. 

 

If students are using 1 computer:

  1. The first student in the group will create the entry. They will click the check box next to: "Will this be a team project?"
  2. After the first student has completed registration, this screen can be seen:
    Student Reg 5- Team Registration.jpg
  3. Click the red "Register Next Team Member" button. 
  4. Each student in the group will follow the registration instructions. When they come to the entry creation, their project will already be linked for them and filled in. Do not change any of this information.
  5. Complete each individual registration, clicking on the red "Register Next Team Member" each time, until all students are registered. 
  6. Click the blue "Go To Main Page" button.

 

If students are using multiple computers:

  1. The first student in the group will create the entry. They will click the check box next to: "Will this be a team project?"
  2. After the first student has completed registration, a "Registration Complete" email will be sent. 
  3. At the bottom of this email is a summary of the student's registration information, including the team project key:
    Student Reg 6- email complete team key.jpg
  4. Forward this email, or copy the link (highlighted for illustration purposes in the red box) and send it to the other group members. 
  5. Each remaining student in the group will click the link and follow the registration instructions. When they come to the entry creation, their project will already be linked for them and filled in. Do not change any of this information. 
  6. Registration may proceed as normal.

If group entries need to be adjusted, one group member, their teacher, or an administrator need only make the changes to one registration for those changes to be reflected across all linked projects.

Welcome Judges!

To sign up as a contest judge for the Salt Lake  Regional contest, please select "Create Account" along the top white bar of this webpage, and select "judge" from the drop down menu options. This will take you through the process of completing your judge's profile. 

Do you already have an account as a teacher?  Unfortunately, current system limitations require that a separate account be created for judging purposes. Please repeat the registration process to create a seperate profile in the system. You will be able to use the same email and password. A different username will need to be created.

If you have already registered as a contest judge, you will receive details about your judging assignment via email in the near future. We are grateful for your service and look forward to working with you this year.
