March 2nd NHD Regional Competition Results

  • Check here around 11:30 to see NHD Regional Competition Results.  
  • They don't typically all come out at the same time, so you may have to check in a few times to find out who is moving on to the Semi-Finals.
  • The Final Award Ceremony is supposed to begin at 5:00, so I should have all results posted by 6:00ish.

This link will connect to a Google Sheet that has all of the data for Chief's projects:
