Celebrate National History Day at the state contest on April 29 at the University of Missouri in Columbia!
The State Historical Society is seeking volunteers to serve as judges at this exciting annual event. They hope you will support Missouri students as they express their passion for history through five diverse competition categories: documentaries, exhibits, papers, performances, and websites.
The creativity and hard work that History Day students put into their projects is amazing! Top finishers will advance to represent Missouri at the national contest in the Washington, DC, area in June. If you decide to volunteer, thank you in advance for sharing your time and your talents with these students.
Judges can expect to spend the day interacting with students from across the state in grades six through twelve and providing constructive comments on their work. This feedback contributes to their learning experience and helps prepare top finishers for nationals.
To thank you for your essential participation in National History Day in Missouri 2017, you will be provided with a light breakfast, lunch, and a travel stipend of up to $50 for those whose round trip mileage exceeds 75 miles.
