NHD Idaho Judges

Volunteer to judge or help with the contest for National History Day in Idaho (NHDI) and support Idaho students!


Each year, the NHDI program depends on community members across the Gem State to volunteer their time to help Idaho students competing at the regional and state levels! Judges work in teams to interview students and provide important evaluation, which is the core of the contest. Judges can expect to commit a minimum of ten hours for grading projects.

Contest Day Volunteer:

The regional and state contests would not be possible without our volunteers! Our contest day volunteers help the day run smoothly to provide Idaho students with an exciting and memorable experience.
