National History Day Rulebook:

Student Conduct:

  • Students are expected to conduct themselves, both in person and online, in a manner that brings credit to themselves, their schools, and the affiliates they represent. 
  • Chaperones are responsible for the behavior of the students in their charge. 
  • National History Day is concerned not only for the safety and well-being of students, but also for upholding the interests of parents/guardians, teachers, school principals, and the many supporters who have a vested interest in the students' actions, conduct, and participation. 
  • As guests at Northwest Missouri State University, you are expected to abide by the same rules the University has established for its students.

Students: Contact your teacher for additional information.

Teachers: Contact the regional coordinator for additional information.
