Judges Volunteer Here!
Do you love history? Are you great with kids? Sign up here to judge at a History Day competition this spring!
Last year, more than 5,000 students from 4th-12th grade participated in Utah History Day statewide. This year we expect even more!
History Day gets young people engaged and excited about learning history by giving them the chance to be junior historians. They do real historical research, analyze primary and secondary sources, and draw conclusions based upon what they find. Their topics may be drawn from local, regional, national, or world history, but all are related to the 2016 theme Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History.
Students then present their work in the format of their choosing:
Exhibits * Documentaries * Performances * Websites * Papers. You can click on the Gallery tab to see examples of the different projects.
History Day truly makes a difference for kids, and they gain skills they will use for years to come. But we can't do it without hundreds of committed volunteers who give of their time to evaluate projects and provide meaningful, thoughtful feedback to each student.
Judges training and lunch will be provided.
