National History Day needs judges

REENACTORS! The Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society needs judges for the 2016 National History Day Contest!

Saturday, March 5, 2016
8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Cleveland History Center &
Case Western Reserve University

Returning? Interested? Don't wait! Register now.

If you have judged for History Day in past years, we needn't explain the value of this annual event in getting intermediate and secondary students connected to the study of history. Newcomers to the judging process will find it to be a rewarding opportunity to witness first-hand the impressive work being done in the area's public, private, and parochial schools.

Volunteering as a History Day judge will entail your presence at the Region 3 contest on Saturday, March 5th. Following a brief orientation, judging teams of three members each will disperse to evaluate student papers, websites, performances, documentaries, and exhibits at various sites in the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society or on the campus of Case Western Reserve University.

During or following a lunch provided by Cleveland History Center, judges will complete their evaluation forms and confer with other teams in their category to select the finalists for the state competition. Judges are invited, though not required, to attend the afternoon awards program.
