Important Contest 公告 for 2022 Regional Contests

今年, as we work to rebuild and strengthen participation in NHD across the state, 我们会坚持 两场地区比赛和一场州比赛 (见 比赛的信息 详情页). 我们期望所有的比赛都将亲自举行, 为有需要的人提供住宿.

Important NHDWebCentral Announcement for 2022 Contest Season

Over the past few years NHD Nationals has made significant changes to the NHDWebCentral website builder, 提高可用性并提供视频, 常见问题, and detailed guides for how to build a website using their platform. 然而, we know that many students who are unfamiliar with the platform still find it challenging, and we do not want the website builder to be a barrier for participation.
让NHD尽可能的无障碍, we have decided that for the 2022 regional and state contests, we will accept NHD websites created on alternative platforms such as Google or Microsoft, 只要学生使用他们的学校账号就可以. We will then offer assistance to any students heading to Nationals who need to move their website to NHDWebCentral, 全国赛唯一接受的站台是哪个.

请访问我们的 虚拟项目指南 page for details of using an alternative website builder for the 2022 麻萨诸塞州 competitions. If you have any questions about student websites, please email us at
