National History Day Mentoring Program - Judges
Every National History Day Competition, regardless of level, depends upon the
wonderful team of volunteers who make it possible. Critical to the team are
the judges. NHD is a program that engages students in a year long adventure in
which they become research scholars. Students, working either individually
or in a group, conduct their research and present their findings through
one of five media: historical paper, Exhibit, Performance, Documentary or
Website. As a judge you'll get to share in their excitement as they report
their findings at a contest.
The State of Georgia has ten regions and each one needs volunteers at the school
as well as regional level. Each year our state contest, which convenes at
Mercer University, requires 75-80 judges.
You can choose the category you wish to judge.
The categories with links
to the judging instructions follow.
Veteran Judges please note: during the 2014-2015 academic year NHD revised and published a new rule book. It is imperative that we be aware of these changes. Our colleagues at Minnesota History Day and NHD developed a rules change summary document. Please review this before your contest. Thank you!!!!
Each judge will complete a judging sheet.
Our friends at National History Day Minnesota have developed a
training video that covers the basics for judging NHD projects.
