The Ohio History Day competition is made possible through volunteer judges who spend the day encouraging young scholars, inspiring future historians, having fun, and helping their communities.
Ohio History Day is an academic competition for students in grades 6-12 that encourages student-driven historical research and requires students to present their findings in the format of a performance, exhibit (tri-fold display), website, paper, or documentary. The Region 4 competition will feature projects by students from Ashtabula, Geauga, Mahoning, Portage, and Trumbull Counties that address the 2021 theme, Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.
All who wish to participate as a judge must have the capacity to meet virtually on Saturday, March 27, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending when you have wrapped up consensus judging with your teammates and completed your evaluation sheets. You do NOT have to be an expert historian to be a History Day judge. You must enjoy talking with students and be able to give constructive feedback on their projects. Training will be provided in the form of a pre-orientation video, as well as a required orientation at 9 a.m. on contest day to review rule changes and evaluation sheet updates. Judges are placed into teams on contest day to collaborate with each other, and project materials will be sent out to review individually no later than seven (7) days prior to the contest.
For questions or interest in being a judge, contact email@example.com.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Youngstown State University History Day

History Day is an academic competition for students in grades 6-12. The program encourages student-driven historical research, focused on identifying primary and secondary sources, and requires students to present their findings. Region 4 includes Ashtabula, Geauga, Mahoning, Portage, and Trumbull counties.
Since 1975, about 300 students per year have been welcomed to Youngstown State University on one weekend each April for the annual Ohio History Day Competition. History Day meets Ohio's Learning Standards and can improve test scores, prepare students for college and careers, and inspire students by allowing them to think creatively and critically about a topic of their interest.
The competition is made possible through volunteer judges who spend the day encouraging young scholars, inspiring future historians, having fun, and helping their communities. We are currently recruiting volunteer judges for the upcoming contest on Saturday, April 4, 2020.
