Judge's Registrationunnamed.jpg

Korea NHD asks that each school provide at least one judge for every three entries from their school however more judges are always welcome.

This contest is the culmination of countless hours of research and hard work put forth by hundreds of students therefore it is vital that judges provide in-depth and detailed feedback to each entry in their judging group. The feedback you provide help students understand areas in which they excelled and areas in which more work is needed. 


Judgement Day

If you are confirmed as a National Contest judge, you will receive detailed instructions and materials to help you prepare for your busy day. The morning begins with a judging orientation and meeting your fellow judges. 

Entries are scheduled at specific time intervals, depending on which category you are judging. There will be a lunch break midday. You will complete evaluations for each entry and submit other paperwork. 

After the last entry in your judging group has finished, you and your judging teammates will discuss comments and ratings, and come to a conclusion about the final overall rankings for the entries in your group.

At the end of the day you will be tired, but refreshed with the spirit of youth who value history and are eager for your feedback about their year-long projects. 

*The process described here varies for the website and paper categories. If you are interested in these categories, the process will be explained to you.

Information about rules can be found in the offcial rule book linked here.
