Contest Judge

Contest judges play a vital role in the success of NHDI. Beyond choosing the projects to advance, judges provide valuable feedback for each project they judge. We are looking for judges who have a background in history, education, media, museums, libraries, etc., and who want to share their love of learning with Indiana students.


Special Awards Sponsors

At the NHDI state contest, participants may receive special prizes sponsored by cultural institutions around the state. Each award comes with specific criteria that a student must meet, in order to win the prize. These criteria may be narrowly or broadly defined, targeting a specific topic, grade level, project category or social issue. Special prizes offer a chance to encourage inquiry-based learning, individuality and curiosity in young people.

For more information on National History Day in Indiana’s special award sponsorships, email Kathy Clark at or call (317) 234-7641.
