We hope you can join us for a very heartening exposure to young people doing good things.

History Day judges are adults with an interest in history and a desire to help students in grades 6 -12 improve their ability to do historical research and present their results in public. 

We expect to see contest entries from over 400 students at the Shoreline Center on Wednesday, 21 March 2012. Judges will work in teams of three using the evaluation criteria provided by National History Day. We need help evaluating student work at two different times:

We need judges to read papers and evaluate websites in February and early March. Judges work independently but meet briefly once as a team of three to assemble results. If you are interested in those types of entries, please mark your calendars as follows:

  • Wed, 8 Feb, 7:00-8:30 p.m. Paper judges receive assignments at Shoreline Center
  • Thurs 16 Feb, 7:00-8:30 p.m. Website judges receive assignments at Shoreline Center
  • Fri, 2 Mar Evaluations due to coordinators
  • Mon, 5 Mar Final round paper and website judging begins
  • Mon, 19 Mar Evaluations due to coordinators

We need judges to evaluate exhibits, documentaries and performances at the Shoreline Center on Wednesday, 21 March. Most judges will serve only in the morning. Some experienced judges will be asked to serve also in the afternoon. Please mark your calendars as follows:
  • 7:30 a.m. Meet in the Shoreline Room for orientation
  • 9:00 - 11:30 a.m. Evaluate entries in preliminary round
  • 12:30 - 2:30 p.m. Final round judges evaluate entries

Please contact us by email to offer your services. For further information see the History Day website 

Volunteers can expect to hear from us during the first week of January when judge registration begins.
