Call for History Day Judges!!
Students will be competing with their history research projects in Albuquerque, Farmington and Las Cruces throughout March and April, and we want you to judge! We are seeking public or professional historians, educators, graduate students, museum professionals and others with a love of history and a desire to help students nurture their passion for history. This year's theme is Conflict and Compromise. NMHC offers training to all judges prior to each National History Day contest, and serve lunch and refreshments during the contests. The judge's day lasts from 8 am through mid-afternoon. Website and paper judges receive their entries and judge them prior to the contest, and then have a shorter day than judges for the other categories. If you have questions about judging or attending the contests, please contact New Mexico History Day State Coordinator Ellen Dornan.
