Judges needed for Illinois History Day - what's that?

Illinois History Day is April 24 at the BOS Center in downtown Springfield. Students, grades 6-12, compete at the state-level competition after advancing from four Illinois regionals (North, Central, South, and Chicago area). State winners may advance to the National History Day competition in Maryland June 9-13.

Lauren Gleason, volunteer coordinator, Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) State Historic Sites; and Jenn Edginton, interim director, Illinois State Museum joined Community Voices to provide more information about the experience for students and volunteers. Judges and other volunteers to facilitate the event are still needed.
