Get Help with your State-Bound Projects!

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

If you were chosen as a regional finalist and will be headed to the State History Day competition on May 1, you have an opportunity to get a bit of extra help with your project. The History Day staff will be conducting Category Help Sessions for any state-bound students who want some feedback as they make changes to their projects.

Twenty-minute sessions with HD staffers will be available on one of two dates:

  • Tuesday, April 6: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 10: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you would like to take advantage of this great opportunity, e-mail Jessica Ellison with the following information:

  • Your name (and group members’ names, if applicable)
  • Your project category
  • Your school
  • Your preferred date and time

These help sessions are first-come, first-served. We will try to accommodate time requests. If you choose to sign up, bring your project (performers, be prepared to perform live) and your bibliography. Staff will review your project and make suggestions for improvement. DO NOT sign up if you are unwillingly to make some changes to your project. HD staff is happy to help you, but you have to be ready to take advice and run with it.
