Judges are needed at all levels of the History Day competition. Judges evaluate the students' entries and provide the positive and constructive feedback that is essential to the learning process.
You can request a judging assignment in a category that aligns with your profession or experience. If you have no preference, we'll find a category that needs your help. Prior to the History Day competition you will receive your judging assignment with the information for the corresponding category. The packet you receive will also contain information about the time and location of your judge orientation session as well as further instructions. Please review all materials carefully.

The event coordinator will provide specific logistical information about the day of competition, including event locations, times, and the specific NHD category you will be judging. On the day of the event, the event coordinator will also provide a brief judge orientation to familiarize you with the program.
