ATTENTION TEACHERS! If you are participating for the first time, you will need to contact the state office at BEFORE you try to register in order to have your school added into the system. If you are unsure, please check the list below to see which schools are currently in our system.

Both new and returning teachers need to have a completed registration prior to any students registering. In previous years, returning teachers were able to reuse their accounts. We have discontinued this practice. Teachers and students will be required to create a new account each contest year.

Feel free to create an account with the same username and password each year. All teacher data will be wiped from the system at the start of each contest year, so you do not need to be concerned with accidentally creating duplicate accounts or having students register under various duplicate teacher accounts.

If you forget your password, you can click the “Forgot My Password” button or you can email the state office at to reset it.

Thank you for your cooperation and your involvement in Nebraska National History Day!
