History enthusiasts, students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in History Day at the Western Reserve Historical Society on Saturday, March 5. History Day is an opportunity for middle school and high school students in the area to present exhibits, papers, films, and performances based on historical research. Volunteering as a History Day judge will entail your presence at the Region 3 contest on Saturday, March 5. Following a brief orientation, judging teams of three members each will disperse to evaluate student papers, websites, performances, documentaries, and exhibits at various sites in the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society or on the campus of Case Western Reserve University.
During or following a lunch provided by Cleveland History Center, judges will complete their evaluation forms and confer with other teams in their category to select the finalists for the state competition. Judges are invited, though not required, to attend the afternoon awards program. Go here to register: http://oh.nhd.org/ud/templates/reg-VJAStatus.php?t=1&cid=26
