Welcome to the National History Day New Mexico VIRTUAL State Contest

Thank you so much for volunteering to judge for the New Mexico History Day State Contest!

Orientation

The orientation will be self-directed and takes about 20 minutes. 

Click here to start the orientation; no registration necessary You can log in as a guest. 

You will be able to download all materials for your judge packet from within the orientation but here is a separate link: All materials in Judge Packets

Special awards judges will receive your projects April 25, along with specific instructions for submitting rankings. All other judges have already been assigned and can see your team and your assignments in the online judge portal.

You can see your final assignments April 25. Submissions are due April 23, with a grace period of 24 hours to troubleshoot technical challenges.

Please complete the orientation by April 25, when you will receive these final judging assignments. We will host a Zoom Q&A April 26 at 4 pm. Please check your emails for instructions on joining. The Zoom meeting is optional for anyone who has questions. 

During that week, you will need to schedule a remote meeting with the other judges, deliberate about the projects, and reach consensus. It will be up to the team captains to schedule these meetings and either come up with a technical solution (3 way calling, Google Hangouts, Zoom, etc) or reach out so we can help you make arrangements.

Judges have until May 1 to return the feedback forms, meet to deliberate, and rank the projects.

Please report your volunteer contribution by May 1.

Please give us feedback on your experience by May 1.

A couple of notes: 

  1. Exhibits will be presented as text and images in a PDF document. Exhibit students whose exhibits are locked up in schools are recreating the exhibit as a PowerPoint to the best of their ability. They should not be penalized.
  2. Group performances will be submitting scripts only. They may include pictures of their sets, props, or costumes. Many students had their projects locked up in the schools and cannot retrieve them. Individual performance students should not be penalized for not having props, costumes, or built exhibits.
  3. According to the direction from the national office, there will be no student interviews. 
  4. Please take into consideration the difficulties these students have faced completing projects this year. In your feedback, take some time to congratulate them on their achievements. 

We know it's not ideal, but we are hoping that together, we can create a fun, positive, and fair experience for our talented young scholars. 

We can't thank you with a lovely meal but we do have excellent judge goody bags arranged. Please make sure we have your correct mailing address and t-shirt size! You can put your tshirt size in your judge comments on your profile. 

If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me at historyday@nmhumanities.org. We will be updating this site with current info. Stay safe and healthy!
