Judges and Volunteers

"I liked being judged because I could share all the hard work I did." Vermont History Day student

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.

Volunteers are also crucial for keeping the contest day running smoothly. Volunteers help with student registration, hallway monitoring, and other tasks that arise during the day.
