Why History Day?
Judges and volunteers are needed at all levels of History Day competition. Judges - historians, educators, and others interested in participating - evaluate the students’ entries and provide both the positive and the constructive feedback that is essential to the learning process. Volunteers are critical to maintaining a smoothly running event. They help with registration, room monitoring, and other assorted duties.

Judge Handbook and Guidelines
Judges are responsible for knowing the rules and criteria for evaluating each entry.  Please review the following information:

National History Day – California Rulebook (pdf)
