Washington History Day Judges

Judges are needed at all levels of the History Day competition. Judges evaluate students' entries and provide the positive and constructive feedback that is essential to the learning process. 


The most important qualities in a History Day judge are kindness, fairness, willingness to listen, and the ability to provide thoughtful, written feedback. All other training will be provided.  You can request a judging assignment in a category that aligns with your profession, experience, or personal interest. If you have no preference, we'll find a category that needs your help.

Please complete an online registration to serve as a judge at Washington History Day's VIRTUAL 2021 State Contest.
