Mass History Day 2019: Triumph and Tragedy in History
Do you love history? Do you love talking with young people about the past? Massachusetts History Day needs you!

MHD offers students in grades 6-12 the opportunity to become historians. They perform extensive research, analyze primary sources, and present their findings through papers, exhibits, performances, websites, and documentaries. Judging is key to the success of Massachusetts History Day program! Hundreds of judges are needed to meet with students at regional and state-wide contests. Judging is a fantastic way to connect with students, support your community, and learn about history.

Judges at a regional or state contest evaluate the work of young researchers studying topics related to an annual theme. They work on teams to review entries in a specific category, interview students, and provide written feedback. Judges will also select which projects advance from the Regional to State and National levels of competition. Judging will be a weekend event with a 5-6 hour time commitment, and teachers will receive PDPs for their participation as well.

The 2019 Competitions are as follows:

South Shore Regional: Saturday March 2rd, Foxborough High School
Central West Regional: Saturday March 2nd, Quabbin Regional High School
Greater Boston Regional: Sunday March 3rd, Stoneham High School
North Shore Regional: Sunday March 3rd, Beverly High School
