The 2013 Ohio History Day competition will be April 27th at the Ohio Union at OSU in Columbus. National History Day in Ohio is sponsored by the Ohio Historical Society and is a year-long program where students choose a topic related to the annual theme, conduct research, analyze the information, and create papers, performances, documentaries, exhibits or websites. The 2013 theme is Turning Points in History. Ohio History Day is for students in grades 4-5 and 6-12.
Judges are needed for both district and state History Days. Judges work in teams, interact with participants, evaluate student projects, and the decide which projects will move on to the next level of competition. Judging typically starts at 8am with an overview of the program and training and is done by 1pm. There are judging opportunities across Ohio every weekend in March and at the state event on April 27th. District contest dates can be found online at www.ohiohistory.org/education/national-history-day-in-ohio/contest-information/districts an the correspond to the dates of The Alliance’s regional meetings.
