Quick Summary

Minnesota History Day needs judges for regional and state competitions! Be a judge and learn about the amazing work by students across Minnesota.


Since opening judge registration in mid-December, we have filled 261 Virtual Regional spots, and 164 Virtual State judge spots! While this is an amazing number, we are one third of the way there. Based on our current participation numbers, we estimate still needing to fill an additional 679 judge spots!

You can find the instructions for signing up online on this PDF. Please consider joining us for either our Virtual Regional or Virtual State contest - or both!
