Welcome to Ohio History Day! 



We're so glad that you've decided to participate in History Day this year. Before you get started there are a few things we'd like you to keep in mind. 

1. Your teacher must be registered in order for you to register. Please wait to register until you're sure your teacher has already done so. 

2. If you have a group entry, you'll all need to link your accounts to the same project. If you are part of a group project, students will register individually.  The student who registers first will receive a project key that the other group members must know to link their registrations to the group project.

Thank you for your interest in judging at the Region 6 Ohio History Day contest. This contest takes place on Saturday, February 29, 2020 on Capitol Square (downtown Columbus at the Ohio Statehouse and Rhodes Tower) and serves students in Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Knox, Licking, Madison, Perry, Pickaway, and Union counties.

The question we are most frequently asked about History Day judging is: do I have to be an “expert” to judge?  The answer is NO!  If you like history and you consider yourself a critical thinker or an avid reader/writer, then you are qualified to be a History Day judge.

A good history day judge also:

  • Likes talking to kids
  • Asks open-ended questions
  • Gives constructive feedback
  • Remains objective while assessing subject matter
  • Works in teams to find consensus

On Competition Day:

Please note that all judges must arrive by 8am for orientation and remain until evaluation sheets have been completed. 

Judging papers and websites requires a time commitment outside of the normal contest hours. If you are interested in judging either of these categories, please be aware that you will need to submit evaluations (which may be updated) online before the contest.

To sign up to judge at other regional contests or the state contest, you can visit the Ohio History Day website.
