We need your help

National History Day in Indiana is not possible without the hundreds of volunteers who give their time, and sponsors who donate special awards for learners. Volunteers are needed at each contest throughout Indiana. Click below to learn more about judging, volunteering, and sponsoring a special prize.

Contest Judge

Contest judges are critical to the success of National History Day in Indiana. Not only do judges choose the winners that advance to the next level of competition, but on contest days they become mentors to History Day students by providing valuable feedback for each project. We’re looking for adults with backgrounds in history, education, media and related fields who like to share their passion for learning with students. Typically, these volunteers include teachers and college professors, graduate and undergraduate college students, museum professionals, librarians and other members of the community.

Sign up to judge online

General Volunteer

Volunteers are needed on competition days to assist with morning registration and student exhibit set-up and to monitor the documentary, performance and exhibit rooms during the day-long contest. To sign-up as a History Day volunteer, sign up online. For additional information, email volunteers@indianahistory.org or call (317) 234-7640.

Special Awards Sponsors

At the state competition awards ceremony each spring, students receive special recognition awards sponsored by cultural institutions around the state. The criteria for awarding these prizes may be very specific or broadly defined. Awards may be a topic of study, address a social issue or target a certain grade level or project category. Becoming a special award sponsor is a unique opportunity for an organization to become an advocate for history education in Indiana.

For more information on National History Day in Indiana’s special award sponsorships, email nhdi@indianahistory.org or call (317) 233-9559.
