Be a Judge for National History Day (April 30th) in Columbia!

National History Day in Missouri is April 30, 2016!  The State Historical Society of Missouri is looking for volunteers for the judging team for National History Day in Missouri 2016.  

The state contest will be held April 30 at the University of Missouri in Columbia. The Society is seeking 150 volunteers to act as judges in both the junior division (grades 6-8) and senior division (grades 9-12).  

Support Missouri students as they express their passion for history through five diverse competition categories: documentary, exhibit, paper, performance, and website.

Top finishers will advance to represent Missouri at the national contest in the Washington, DC, area in June.

"What impressed me most about these young students was their combination of history knowledge and personal initiative."
—NHDMO judge

Judges will be provided a light breakfast, lunch, and a travel stipend of $50 for those living more than 40 miles from Columbia.
