Thank you for your interest in judging at the Massachusetts History State Competition!

Why judge at Massachusetts History Day?

Judging is key to the success of the Massachusetts History Day program! Dozens of judges are needed to meet with students at the Massachusetts State Competition on Saturday, April 7th 2018. Judging is a fantastic way to connect with students, support your community, and learn about history. Some of the perks of judging:

  • Support Massachusetts students
  • PDP credits for educators
  • Massachusetts History Day swag
  • Free breakfast and lunch
  • Meet other history enthusiasts
  • Promote the learning of history
  • Learn something new!

Who are the judges?

Hundreds of judges are needed across the four District contests, as well as for the State finals. Judges are history lovers from all walks of life - educators, librarians, archivists, history students, professors, historical society affiliates, museum personnel, national park rangers, History Day alumni, even armchair historians & history buffs!

What does judging involve? 

Competition days starts approximately 8:00 AM and generally ends about 2:00 PM. You will attend a judge’s orientation in the morning before you meet with the students. This provides an opportunity to review any rule changes, discuss the annual theme, and to answer any questions you have about specific entries. We will provide morning coffee and pastries and a lunch at midday.

 Students are divided up into 2 divisions: Junior (grades 6-8) and Senior (grades 9-12). Within these divisions there are five categories: Research Paper, Exhibit, Documentary, Performance, or Website. While the physical rules vary from category to category, the underlying rules (historical accuracy, relation to theme, quality of bibliography, etc.) are the same across the board, from historical research papers to websites.

Judges will be assigned categories in teams of three. Judging assignments are handed out on contest day, with the exception of Papers and Websites--those judges receive projects in advance to review. (Web judges will be provided URL links to access the projects online. Papers can either be emailed in Adobe.PDF format or mailed as hard copies.) On contest day, Website and Paper judges will have a brief interview with students and then time to deliberate with your team. All other category judges will both view projects and interview students on contest day. Once your interviews are complete, you will meet with your team to decide the final winners and fill out the judges’ consensus forms that are then handed back to students.

How to register:

On the right side of the page, fill out your name and email address and click the “Register” button.  Follow the prompts for "Judges" and indicate the categories you are most interested in judging.  We will be in touch with more information soon!

If you have any questions, please contact the State Coordinator Kate Melchior at kmelchior@masshist.org.
