Dear PhD students,


A history teacher at Langley High School is looking for judges for her school’s National History Day competition.  It will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2:30-5:30.  If you are interested in volunteering, contact Allison Herzig, at [log in to unmask] .


Most of you don’t remember that until 4-5 years ago the department used to host and organize the regional competition of National History Day, and many of our doctoral students served as judges.  It’s a fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity.  It’s like being a judge for a social studies fair, except all the projects are related to history.
