Welcome to the SC NDH Judging Portal

***It has not yet been decided if the 2022 state competition will be in-person or virtual.***

Thank you for your willingness to serve as a judge in the state competition. Every National History Day Competition, regardless of level, depends upon the wonderful team of volunteers who make it possible. Critical to the team are the judges. NHD is a program that engages students in a year long adventure in which they become better scholars and citizens. Students, working either individually or in a group, conduct their research and present their findings through one of five media: historical paper, exhibit, performance, documentary or website. As a judge you'll get to share in their excitement as they report their findings at a contest.   
 

All Judges please note:  We have a new rule book!  There have been some significant changes from previous editions so please take some time to review both the rule book and the summary of significant changes. Veteran judges will find the latter particularly helpful. Please review this before your contest. Thank you!!!!

Training:

Each judge will complete an evaluation/comment sheet.  Please be aware that from the 2020-2021 academic year (and on) we have both a new rule book AND new evaluation sheets. Take some time to carefully review these rubric style evaluation sheets.  

Our friends from National History Day Maine, Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan have created videos to assist you in preparing for your judging experience.  Please follow the links below for information on General and Category Rules.

We also have category specific judge packets that will assist you as you judge student projects.

Offer constructive feedback students can use to improve their project, whether they are advancing or not. Students have devoted significant time and effort in these projects. Focus on the positive.

Virtual Judging Process:

***It has not yet been decided if the 2022 state competition will be in-person or virtual.***

Each flight will be judged by two or three judges. Once you have registered and been assigned to a flight, you will be able to review and score student projects from (TO BE ANNOUNCED). All scoring (rubric and comments) should be completed on the zFairs system. Also, zFairs has a Zoom-like function for judges to meet. If there are multiple flights judging the same category, head judges will need to discuss which two projects will advance to the national contest. Below is a flow chart of how virtual judging will be done. The chart is borrowed from the Minnesota NHD contest, so some information (such as dates) will not apply.
