Alabama History Day for Judges

Seeking history lovers!

We are looking for Alabamians interested in celebrating these year-long projects. After months of diligent research and creative energy, winning students from the local level will meet at our state-wide event. You can help them further hone their skills by evaluating entries, interviewing contestants, and selecting winners to represent our state in the national competition.

While most judges work in the humanities (e.g., educators, librarians, museum professionals, and writers) all volunteers interested in witnessing the impressive documentaries, exhibits, performances, research papers, and websites created by Alabama youth are encouraged to judge!

Follow this link to sign up as a volunteer judge for this year’s competition. You will need to create an account and establish yourself as “Judge” (not “Teacher,” “Volunteer,” etc.). For questions about this process, feel free to contact Program Coordinator Rachel Hartsell at
