Judges play an important role in the Vermont History Day process. Working in teams of three, judges interact with the student historians, asking them questions about their projects and research. At the end of the contest, judges provide written feedback for each student, providing encouragement and validation of the student's work.

The 2021 Vermont History Day state contest will again be a virtual contest. With additional time for planning this year, we are able to coordinate synchronous judging on the contest day via Zoom.

Additional information about judging for Vermont History Day 2021 will be posted in mid-January.

Thank you for your flexibility as we adapt the contest in order to honor the work of student historians and maintain social distancing!
