History Day 2012

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. Organizers expect to see contest entries from about 300 students at the Shoreline Center on Friday, March 20, 2015.

Judges will work in teams of three. They need help evaluating student work at two different times:

1.  Judges to read papers and evaluate web sites 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, indicate that when you register in January. Paper and web site judging coordinators will contact you with details.

2. Judges to evaluate exhibits, documentaries and performances at the Shoreline Center on Friday, March 20. Indicate your preferences when you register in January. Most judges will serve only in the morning. They also need judges for final rounds in the afternoon. 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.

This is a very heartening exposure to young people doing good things. If you want further information, visit the history day website.
