Changes for 2014: Rules & Information
Each year, the National History Day organization and HOTRHF issue updated rules, guidelines, and other materials. To help returning teachers and students to spot changes HOTRHF has developed this list.
POSSIBLE RULE CHANGES WILL BE MADE THIS 2014:
IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR THIS REGION - VERY IMPORTANT - EXHIBIT RULE ADDITION: The past two years the state of Texas was chosen for a pilot test to add the Exhibit-Board-word-count noted at the bottom of the Exhibit Title Page. This addition will continue to be required on HOTRHF Exhibit Projects for 2014. See the exhibit board word count limit and how-to-count student composed words is found in "Rules Specific for Exhibits - Rule 3"
PREMENANT CHANGE: FOUR (4) copies of written material for Exhibits, Performance and Documentary is required of title page, process paper, and bibliography. This is a change at regional level since 2011 and now required at THD and NHD. See exceptions for Papers and Web Sites.
CHANGE: Heart of Texas Regional History Fair Changes
CHANGE: Texas History Day Changes Texas
CHANGE: National History Day Changes
REMINDER: WEB SITES - PROJECT PORTAL FOUND by going to NHD Home Page at National History Day
CHANGE: IMPORTANT HOTRHF NOTE: Web Site projects now have a "PASSWORD PROTECT" option. DO NOT LOCK your Password – repeat – DO NOT LOCK your Password. DO NOT USE the Password Protect option. This option locks out the judges.
