Summit Middle School seeking judges for National History Day competition
March 29, 2017
Summit Middle School is recruiting volunteers to serve as judges for its National History Day competition on Saturday, April 1, from 8 a.m. to noon.
Organizers said that participants don't need to have a history background to serve as judges, just simply a willingness to contribute their time and talents.
More than half a million middle and high school students are currently competing in National History Day contests by conducting historical research relevant to this year's theme, "Taking a Stand in History."
"The annual theme provides a way to increase students' historical understanding by developing a lens to read history," National History Day executive director Dr. Cathy Gorn said in a news release. "When we chose this theme a few years ago, we had no idea how relevant it would be in 2017."
Students create projects in one of five categories: documentary, exhibit, paper, performance or website.
