Experienced judges are welcome to let us know if they are interested and available to judge second round, but there are limited positions available for second round judging. We will contact folks again in April to let them know if they are needed as a final round judge. (PLEASE NOTE THAT STATE IS ON A SUNDAY THIS YEAR.) First-round State History Day: SUNDAY, May 1, 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Second-round State History Day: SUNDAY, May 1, 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Paper Judging: Off-Site Papers are evaluated off-site by teams of judges. Paper judges do not attend a Regional contest. Paper judges receive approximately ten papers via postal mail in early March, review projects, discuss with their judge partner over phone or email, and provide rankings and written comments for each project. Results and comments will be due on Tuesday, March 22. Paper judges will be confirmed in mid-February. Once confirmed, paper judges will get a link to an online training, which paper judges are encouraged to view. I would like to judge papers off-site and will be able to turn in my results and comments by Tuesday, March 22. Which categories would you be willing to judge? Check ALL that apply. * Please indicate ALL of the categories you will be willing to judge. We will do our best to honor your preference, but please note that you may be asked to judge something else, depending on numbers.
