MAINE NATIONAL HISTORY DAY 2015
CALL FOR JUDGES
Do you love history? Do you support dynamic hands-on projects for
students? Then we are looking for you!
Sign up now to be a judge for the 2015 Maine National History Day
competition, to be held at UMaine in Orono, on Saturday, March 28. Whether
you've been a judge for several years running, or have never experienced
the excitement and reward of History Day, we encourage you to take a few
minutes to join the 2015 team. It's an inspiring experience!
The competition runs from 10AM-3PM; judges must be on-site by 8:30AM.
Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided.
Judge registration this year is via the National History Day website.
Please go to http://me.nhd.org/ud/templates/registerLinks.php?cid=71
select “Judge” from the drop-down menu, then create a username and
password. Once you do that, youíll be directed to a form where you can
provide your name and contact info, and choose your preferred judging
Please note this form does not require ranking your choices so we
recommend selecting at least three categories (and more if you wish) that
you would be happily willing and able to judge. We make every effort to
align judge registrants with one of their chosen categories, but make no
We strongly encourage you to sign up by February 20, and, as an extra
incentive, we will put your name in a drawing for a great prize.

The final deadline for judge registration, however, is February 27.
You'll get an initial automated confirmation email and, in early March,
Maine NHD coordinator John Taylor will be in touch with your judging
assignment, information and resources about the judging role and
responsibilities, and the logistics of the day.
