Help Students Make History: Become a History Fair Judge
The Chicago Metro History Education Center (CMHEC) invites you to serve as a judge at a 2015 History Fair event. As a judge, you will evaluate historical research projects—documentaries, performances, exhibits, websites, or research papers on topics related to Chicago history—produced by local students in grades 6-8 or 9-12. Register online or download a print registration form.
No previous experience or specialized degree in history or education are necessary. All you need is an appreciation for student effort, an interest in history, and a commitment to quality education. On the day of the History Fair event, you will receive a full orientation and each new History Fair judge will be paired with an experienced judge.
CMHEC needs 500 volunteer judges each year to make History Fair a success. Please see the many judging opportunities that are available and select the session that works best for you.
The weekend event dates for 2015 are: _____________________. Weekday or evening sessions are available for judging papers in March and April. Website judges are sent urls to judge and talk with their partner judges over the phone.
