Email Assistance: Email your questions about research, competition rules, the annual theme, and more to our state coordinator at dlstuckle@nd.gov. We will work with our staff and volunteers to help find answers. Include your name, your teacher’s name, the name of your school and the city it’s located in, your grade level (6-12), and a brief description of what kind of help you are seeking.

Research Open House: Visit one of our regional research open houses for a tour of the library and archives, one-on-one help, mini-workshops for students and educators, and more. Dates and locations will be determined annually.
