History Day

Wednesday, February 23, 2022

The Social Studies Department at Saint Thomas Academy invites you to be a judge in our 28th annual History Day in Minnesota contest. This year’s contest features our Grade 8 and 11 students creating websites, documentaries, and performances on the theme of “Debate & Diplomacy in History.”

Because this year’s regional competition will be held virtually, we are going to prepare our students for this experience by holding a virtual school event. This is similar to what we did last year and may make it easier for some to participate because the judging will be done mostly at your own pace.

Our students will submit their projects for judging on Wednesday, February 23. Judges will receive links to the projects that day and will have several days to review them. Judges will schedule a time to consult with the other members of their judging team, and will create a ranked list of their entries. They will then return their rankings to Mr. Hoverson by Monday, February 28 by 5:00 p.m.

If you are interested in judging, please fill out the form located HERE before Sunday, February 20. You will receive a confirmation email with additional information and links to judging instructional videos and critique sheets.

Thank you for supporting our history students!
