Michigan History Day

Judges Still Needed!


We could use your help! On Saturday, April 26, the Historical Society of Michigan will host over 400 students grades 4-12 who will compete in the state finals of National History Day. This exciting event takes place at Saline Middle School.


We still need about 20 judges to help review the student entries!  Volunteer judges serve from 8:00 a.m. until approximately 1:30 p.m. 


If you are willing, please sign up to judge before April 10 using the online registration page at http://www.hsmichigan.org/mhd/judges/ 


You do not need to have previous experience with Michigan 

History Day.  As a judge, you’ll review entries in a given category as part of a judging team, conduct a brief interview with the students, write comments for the students to review, and then select two finalists. Judging for performances and exhibits will be done on the day of the competition. Papers, websites, and documentaries will be reviewed in advance. Interviews with students for all five categories will take place on the day of the event.  


If you plan to judge and register online, we will confirm your commitment via e-mail shortly after you register. The second week of April, you will receive detailed event information including your specific assignment. 


More information about National History Day can be found at www.nhd.org. Information on Michigan History Day is available on our website at http://www.hsmichigan.org/mhd. We hope you can join us this year. Thank you for your support of Michigan History Day!
