The Patterson Joint Unified School District is seeking judges for the first History Day competition held at local schools in mid-March. Judges must register by Monday, Feb. 24.

The district is seeking 35 people to judge students and give a commitment of two hours from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 14 for orientation and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 15 for the judging.

The judges will be using a format created by the National History Day Organization to create questions for the youth to answer.

Both breakfast and lunch will be served to participants and judges at the hospitality room at Creekside Middle School, 535 Peregrine Drive, on the day of the judging.

National History Day is a yearlong educational enrichment program involving 600,000

National History Day teaches students important literacy skills to help students engage and understand the principles behind museum and library sciences.

The National History Day program also encourage students to study their local history and compare their findings to worldwide views.

The students will conduct extensive research related to an annual theme and present their findings in one of four categories: exhibits, documentaries, performances or papers. Students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills while creating their entries.

Judges and students who participate in the day are asked to dress in professional attire; no jeans, please. Additional info: http://www.nhd.org
