Important Resources:

Calling all National History Day students! What is your #NHD2021 topic for "Communication in History: The Key to Understanding"?

 

Collections in the AAPB range from the late 1940s through the present, providing an excellent record of decades-long crises such as AIDS, environmental activism, and civil rights. Compare how (or why) communication has changed in regard to these topics -- OR in what ways has communication stayed the same? A quick tip: pay attention to shifts in terminology, scientific understanding, and public awareness!

 

Visit the AAPB National History Day page for more helpful search tips. Let us know if you have any questions along the way. --> https://americanarchive.org/national-history-day

Website for MLA Style of Writing (the examples have portions highlighted that they are focusing on, of course, you won’t highlight anything in your version): Works cited is another way to say bibliography and an annotated bibliography is one that is expanded.

Annotated Bibliography (You need to go to the MLA site above for information on how to organize your source for the annotated bibliography):

Primary Vs. Secondary Sources (for your projects, you will focus on the examples in the humanities since that is the field that history is under)

Welcome Judges!

Judge Main Page

Judging Process

How does the judging process work?
Each separate division and category is judged as a whole by a team of three judges. Due to the number of entries, run-off rounds may be required. In such cases, the entries judged best by each team of initial judges are judged by a new team of judges to determine the winning entries in the category. The number of entries in a run-off and procedures for run-off judging vary by contest and category.

Consensus judging
Judges will not assign a numerical score to each entry; instead, they will rank the entries in their group. Judges are required to consult with each other in determining individual rankings. Judges are allowed to review the results of their category upon completion of the judging in order to ensure accuracy of the judging process. As a final step, the judges will assign each entry an overall ranking.

Judging Criteria
All projects must be connected to the NHD annual theme. Additionally, all projects must adhere to general and category specific rules set out in the NHD Contest Rule Book. Any rule infraction will be taken into consideration in the final rankings. Projects are judged on the overall following criteria:

  • Historical Accuracy (80%)
  • Relation to Theme (20%)

Click here to view sample evaluation sheets.

The subjective nature of judging
Judges evaluate each entry as objectively as possible, although the BVRHF recognizes there is an inherent subjective nature to judging. 

The decision of the judges is final
All involved (students, parents, and teachers) should realize that inadvertent inequities might occur in judging. BVRHF officials want to be informed of any problems, but the decisions of the judges are final.

Please take a few moments to watch this excellent overview of the judging process that was put together by Minnesota History Day.
