Nora Sullivan-Horner represented NHD Massachusetts at the National competition twice, placing 5th and 3rd place respectively.  As an NHD intern, Nora created an extensive student guide to answer all of your questions, including how to decide on whether to work in a group, how to choose a fun NHD topic, and how to reduce stress for the NHD contest interview!
