For Judges

Calling Judges for Oregon History Day

Judges are needed at the Oregon History Day competition.  Judges evaluate the students' entries and provide the positive and constructive feedback essential to the learning process.

The Oregon History Day contest will be held Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Concordia University in Portland.  Oregon Historical Society is looking for historians, educators, and others to judge student projects at this year’s contest.

Students in 6th through 12th grades conduct extensive research on topics related to an annual theme and present their findings in historical papers, exhibits, documentaries, performances, and websites. This year, the theme is Taking a Stand in History.

Evaluation and discussion with your fellow judges will be an all-day affair. An orientation session will be held in the morning prior to judging student projects. In return for your time and effort, we offer free parking and lunch, endless gratitude, and a positive perspective on Oregon youth. 

We need judges, so please join us and feel free to pass this invitation on to others!  If interested, contact Kristen Pilgrim at Kristen.Pilgrim@ohs.org.
