Sacramento County History Day March 9, 2013

Sacramento County History Day........  This is day well spent, especially when you are sharing the day with young people. These young people have created projects or written papers that cover a number of areas all within the area of 'history'. The theme this year is "Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events"

There are several ways you can enjoy the day .......  as an obsever or as a participant. Observers give alot of great support to the young people. It shows that the outside world does care about they are doing........  Participating as a Judge would also show your support and will help you to understand the projects that have been created. Judges/Volunteers Needed for Sacramento County History Day. If you would like to be a judge please use the contact information at the bottom.  Thank You! 

The Genealogical & Historical Council of Sacramento Valley is offering two $50 cash awards for the "Best in a Genealogical Project/Paper". You may see the winners at Family History Day 2013 exhibit hall.  Gwen Myers and I will be judging this award.  See you there.

The The Center for Sacramento History , in partnership with the Sacramento County Office of Education, will host Sacramento County History Day (SCHD) on Saturday, March 9th at Inderkum High School in Natomas. This year, young scholars in 4th-12th grade from around the county will gather to present their original projects in one of six categories based on the theme, "Turning Points in History: People, Ideas, Events."

Friendly, service-oriented folks with an interest in history are invited to serve as judges at the competition. Judges evaluate student entries, providing positive feedback and constructive criticism to help them advance to the state competition in late April.  Judge training takes place that morning, and breakfast and lunch are provided.  It's a fun day for all, and one that allows some of the best and brightest in our community to shine! 

If you're interested in being a judge, please visit the SCHD Website and fill out the online Judge Registration Form.
