Responsibilities as a Judge
The judge sign-up form allows you to request a specific History Day category that aligns with your profession or experience. If you have no preference, no problem! We'll find a category that needs your help. Prior to the History Day competition you will recieve your judging assignment with the corresponding information on the category you will be judging and a contest rule book to read through.
