National History Day in Northeastern Wisconsin

Coordinated by Archives, Cofrin Library

An opportunity for students grades 6-12 to create a history project and compete at local, regional, state & national levels.


Volunteers & Judges


We are in need of adults and university students who are interested in history and willing to volunteer as judges or room monitors. Volunteers are not required to have formal history training. All that is needed is some knowledge/interest in history and a love for kids!

Judging will take place on March 2, 2024, beginning at 8 a.m.

Please give of your time and talent to help make History Day a success for the students. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to share in the enthusiasm, creativity, and scholarship of Wisconsin’s history students and teachers. You will truly find it a rewarding experience!
