The day of the fair

After registration is complete in January, we will post the schedule for competition as quickly as we can, but no later than two weeks prior to competition. However, until then, please take a look at this sample schedule for HOTRHF to give you an idea of what to expect. All events are held at the Bill Daniel Student Center (1311 S. 5th Street) at the heart of the Baylor University campus.

Everyone wonders just how the judging is done. The judging — as with everything else — is done to the strict specifications of the National History Day judging criteria. Please review these criteria carefully, along with these sample judging sheets. Please note, the breakdown of the evaluation is based on these percentages:

            60% historical quality

            20% clarity of presentation

            20% relation to theme

Special awards are given by a variety of sponsoring organizations. Please join us in thanking these organizations for enhancing the HOTRHF experience with their support.
