National History Day is a fun and challenging event that encourages students to become historians by developing research, analysis, presentation, and social skills. Working individually or in groups, Junior Division (grades 6-8) and Senior Division (grades 9-12) students select a topic related to an annual theme. The 2021 NHD theme is Communication In History: the Key to Understanding. Students conduct extensive historical research using primary and secondary sources . . . and then distill their research and analysis into one of five presentations: a historical research paper,  dramatic performance,  multimedia documentary, a  museum quality exhibit,  or  into a navigable informative website. 

Eight regional contests are held around Washington State in February and March. Students may choose to compete by entering their project against others in the same division and category. Regional winners advance to the Washington History Day State Contest on April 13, 2021. Students who finish in first or second place at the state contest in each category qualify for the National Contest held in June 2021 

The North Puget Sound Contest serves the geographical areas of Seattle, Bainbridge Island, Shoreline, Bothell, Kenmore, and Woodinville.

The contest will be held virtually this year, so you have the opportunity to judge from the comfort of your own home.  We will provide judging directions online, as well as the necessary training needed to give clear feedback.  You will use consensus judging (in groups of two or three) to determine the rank order of projects using national rubrics. 

There are two levels to consider: the Junior Division (grades 6-8) or the Senior Division (grades 9-12)You may also choose whether you wish to judge papers, websites, exhibits, documentaries or performances. You can indicate your preferred choices for judging when registering. If you have a friend or colleague you would like to paired with -- you can indicate that as well. Important: please make sure that you communicate with those that you wold like to be  grouped with and that they have registered too.

 As a judge, you will evalaute 5-7 entries over a period of 1 week (on your own time and schedule) in either a preliminary  and/or finals round. You can sign up to judge in more than one category or round. 

Thank you so much for being willing to judge at our contest and encouraging others to do so as well! Without you, this valuable student experience would not be possible.
