Students are responsible for the research, design, and creation of their entry. A student may receive help and advice from teachers and parents on the mechanical aspects of creating their entry, such as typing your paper and other written materials. Students may seek guidance from their teachers as they research and analyze their material, but their conclusions must be their own. They may have reasonable help preparing their project.


Examples of reasonable help include:


  • a teacher instructs you in how to use an editing software program


  • a parent uses a cutting tool to cut the exhibit board or performance prop that you designed


  • a teacher offers editing suggestions on your paper


  • a parent assists in sewing costumes that you have designed


  • a teacher shows you or your group how to build an NHD website


  • you have photographs commercially developed
