History Day

WEDNESDAY, February 7, 2024

The Social Studies Department at Saint Thomas Academy invites you to be a judge in our 30th annual History Day in Minnesota contest on February 7, 2024. This year’s contest features our 8th and 11th grade students creating exhibits, websites, documentaries, and performances on the theme of “Turning Points in History.”

The national, state, and regional contests are returning to in-person judging, and so are we! Our school contest will be held at STA on the evening of Wednesday, February 7. We would like judges to arrive at 6:15 p.m. for a brief training session and the contest will begin at 7:00 p.m. Judging should be completed by 9:00 p.m. and some groups will be done earlier.

We invite parents, family members, faculty, alumni and anyone in the community with an interest in history to be a judge. No experience or special knowledge is required. We need about 40 judges in order to create groups that are small enough to give the judges enough time with each entry.

If you are interested in judging, please fill out the form located here before Sunday, February 4. You will receive a confirmation email with additional information and links to judging instructional videos and critique sheets.

Thank you for supporting our history scholars!
