Volunteer Judges Needed for History Fair

Do you like learning about Chicago history? Would you enjoy supporting motivated students that want to share their exhibits, performances, websites, documentaries, or papers with you?

Each year, Chicago Metro History Fair students in grades 6-12 select a topic related to Chicago history, then dive deep into research to develop their own interpretation or argument which they then present for evaluation by community-minded judges. Through this research and evaluation process, students gain skills and knowledge that will carry them through high school and prep them for college work.

Please consider volunteering as a History Fair judge this year. Many CAA members (and non-members) have volunteered in the past and found it to be a very rewarding experience. There are several evening and weekend judging opportunities in March and April. No prior experience is necessary. The Chicago Metro History Education Center provides orientation on the day of the event and pairs new judges with veteran judges.

For more information and to volunteer, visit the History Fair website.
