National History Day (NHD) in Maine, is looking for volunteer judges!!
If you are unaware, NHD is a nationally recognized academic program that promotes the study of history in middle and high school classrooms. Participating students develop research papers, exhibits, documentaries, performances, or websites on a topic they select connected to an annual theme. This year’s theme is “Triumph and Tragedy in History.” For more information about our program please visit our webpage.
We currently need judges for the following events (registration closes 3 weeks prior to the event):
March 8 Lewiston Regional Contest at Museum LA
March 23 Bangor Regional Contest at John Bapst Memorial High School
April 27 University of Maine State Contest in Orono
Judge registration can be found under the “Contest Registration” header on our webpage (link above)!
No experience required. There is a judge orientation on the day of the contest. It’s roughly a 3-4 hour commitment and we provide meals for our judges. This is our first year hosting regional contests, and any help would be appreciated! Please remember that you can judge multiple events.
