Student Registration

Hello, Region 3 students!  We're so glad you've decided to complete a History Day project, and we wish you the best of luck in competition. 

Some notes about registration:

Your Teacher and your school must already be registered for you to complete your registration.

Before you begin your registration, you should have:

  • your contact information
  • contact information for a parent or guardian
  • information about your project (title, a short description, and the category). 

If you are part of a group project, students will register individually.  The student who registers first will receive a project key that the other group members must know to link their registrations to the group project.

Students may need to return to this site to submit further information through this registration system, so be careful to remember your password and username so that you may return!

Judge Registration

Thank you for your interest in judging at the Region 3 Ohio History Day contest!

Our judges are a crucial component in making the Region 3 Ohio History Day contest an enriching, memorable experience for the students who participate.  Judges receive training from Region 3 staff on rules and evaluation procedures, and we make every effort to pair new judges with experienced judges.

 

The question we are most frequently asked about History Day judging is: do I have to be an “expert” to judge?  The answer is NO!  If you like history and you consider yourself a critical thinker or an avid reader/writer, then you are qualified to be a History Day judge.

A good history day judge also:

  • Likes talking to kids
  • Asks open-ended questions
  • Gives constructive feedback
  • Remains objective while assessing subject matter
  • Works in teams to find consensus
