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.

3. NEW! Thanks to a generous donation made by the William K. Laidlaw Jr. Memorial Endowment Fund, we are delighted to offer scholarships to cover the regional competition registration cost ($10.00) for a number of students.

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:

 

The Region 6 Contest will take place Saturday, February 29th at the Ohio Statehouse & Rhodes Tower. My last email was a little confusing regarding orientation – please check in at the Ohio Statehouse. All judges will begin judge orientation promptly at 8 a.m. at Milo’s Café on the ground floor of the Ohio Statehouse, so please allow yourself enough time to find parking, go through security at the Statehouse (you’ll need to walk through a metal detector and scan any belongings, for more, visit http://ohiostatehouse.org/about/general-information/security-faq), and check-in with History Day staff. After orientation, judges will make their way to their judging locations.

Before Saturday, February 29, please watch this video for some background on the judging process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hb_WYtwFbzw&feature=youtu.be.

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