Judging at the Heart of Texas Regional History Fair is an excellent way to support community education. Most people hear "National History Day" and are unaware of the interdisciplinary nature of this competition. You do not have to be a historian to be involved! HOTRHF is looking for judges with interest/experience in a variety of fields in addition to history, such as English, film and digital media, mathematics, art history, communication, education, and more!
The dates of the event are February 14, 2020. All events are held at the Bill Daniel Student Center (1311 S. 5th Street) at Baylor University. Whatever your schedule is, we can work with it.
To register, please follow the instructions listed below.
