Virtual Submission Resources

We're aware these are a duplicate of the "Day of Contest" page but some users are not being auto-directed to it with the link we've been providing.

Since we have moved to a virtual contest, we wanted to have a reliable place for students, parents, and instructors to access the rules and resources we put together to assist in converting and submitting projects in a virtual format. We may also put videos together to provide specific guidance for some of the more technical aspects, such as hosting and linking to videos. Papers and websites are alreading being judged and are exempt from virtual submissions.

ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE SENT TO JOSHUA.STYGER.ORC.NHD@GMAIL.COM BY 11:59PM ON MARCH 23rd

Rules Reference: This contains the parameters projects must follow to be considered for judgement. It also contains information regarding how and where to submit virtual projects.

Virtual Exhibit Template: A pre-made word document that students with exhibit projects can use as guidance for submission.

Virtual Documentary/Performance Template: A pre-made word document that students with documentary or performance projects can use as guidance for submission.

Project ID Listing by Division and Category: This is where students can find their project's ID number for submission of their virtual document.

Video Hosting: I'm sure many students are already familiar with popular video hosting platforms like YouTube, Dropbox, and others and are welcome to use them. If, however, you are not familiar with any and/or are looking for an easy way to host your video, we recommend using Streamable.
We put together a short video tutorial on how to use it which can be viewed here.

Below are some example submissions that students can use to get an idea of what their submission should look like:

Student Conduct

Students are expected to conduct themselves, both in person and online in a manner that brings credit to themselves and their schools. Chaperones are responsible for the behavior of the students in their charge.
