Continued for 2010-2011 Websites must be created using Weebly.http://nhd.weebly.com/ STUDENTS MUST GO THROUGH THE NHD PORTAL ABOVE – THEY MAY NOT GO DIRECTLY TO WEEBLY.COM.
More… A full suite of site-building tools will be available on the NHD Weebly portal. While third-party tools may be used to develop objects and components for an entry, the final code must be uploaded with the Weebly tools. All objects or components constructed with third-party tools (e.g. Dreamweaver, iWeb, MS Expression) must be portable to and function correctly with the Weebly editor.
More… All hosting will be performed by Weebly servers. The 100 MB size restriction on entries will remain. Students are free to begin building their entries now, and work on the same Weebly web site as they advance through levels of competition. With the Weebly system, students are free to access and work on their sites at any time other than judging periods, periods during which their sites will be closed to any editing.
More… Four hard copies of the home page, a process paper, and an annotated bibliography will still be required for submission.
Note: Historical Quality is the same as other categories.
Note: Relation to Theme is the same as other categories. Note: These categories are unique to Web Site entries.
