National History Day

National History Day Georgia - 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 eleven regions and each one needs volunteers at the school as well as regional level.  Each year our state contest requires more than 125 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.
