The Indiana Historical Society (IHS) is issuing a call for volunteers for the Northwest Region Contest on Saturday, Feb. 24, at Saint Mary’s College. Enthusiasm is required, but no experience is necessary to volunteer as a judge for the 2018 National History Day in Indiana (NHDI) contests. NHDI is a yearlong program in which students in grades 4 through 12 research a historical topic of their choosing and create projects in the form of documentaries, exhibits, papers, performances and websites. Judges work in teams to interview students about their project, give feedback, and ultimately, rank winners. Regional winners advance to state, where the top two entries from each junior and senior category become eligible to compete in June at the National Contest for National History Day (NHD).
