Important Information Concerning Long Island History Day at Hofstra 3/19/17:
We were just informed that every student attending Hofstra on Sunday MUST fill out a Hofstra release form or they will not be allowed to participate. It takes less than 3 minutes to do but is extremely important that each student completes the form.  It must be done before the contest on Sunday there is a section with parent information that must be electronically signed concerning permission for Hofstra to use photos taken at the event.  
The direct link to the form is below:

If for some reason that does not work you can follow the directions below:

 at the bottom of the page that says regional info there is a blue hyperlink at the bottom that says

HOFSTRA RELEASE FORM they must click on that and enter the information.

Sorry for the confusion but there are new people in charge this year at Hofstra and they completely changed the registration format and need to iron out the kinks moving forward.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email or call Doreen Gordon (631.761.8320).
