Before You Begin

Be Sure Your Teacher Has Registered

Your teacher must register BEFORE you can register.  If you are not working with a teacher, you are an Independent Student (see below). 

Independent Students

If you are working without a teacher, please have a parent or other trusted adult register as your “teacher” in the system. Your “teacher” designee will receive contest related emails and must be able to share them with you. Have them follow the Teacher Registration Instructions. Please also send the contest coordinator an email letting them know you are competing independently.

Your Email Address

Please provide a working email address that will accept mail from zfairs.com. If your school blocks student accounts from receiving outside mail, use a personal or parent’s email (gmail, etc.) that is checked regularly.  

Your NHD Account Lasts All Year

You will only create one NHD Student Account for the entire year. You will use the SAME STUDENT LOGIN for each contest if you advance through local, regional, state, and national levels. Save your username and password so you can easily access and update your information. Do not open additional accounts.

Registration Fees: $10
