For Judges

Calling Judges for Oregon History Day

The Oregon Historical Society is looking for historians, educators, and volunteers to judge student projects at the virtual 2022 Oregon History Day state contest. Judges evaluate students’ entries and provide positive and constructive feedback essential to the learning process. OHS staff members will provide new judges with training on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, from 4pm–5:30pm, with an optional 30-minute Q&A session from 5:30pm–6pm. Judges must be available to evaluate and rank students’ projects between April 22–26, 2022.

Please email history.day@ohs.org if you are interested in serving as a virtual judge for 2022 or if you would like to learn more.
