Did you see our #10YearChallenge?

A popular trend this month online is to showcase a photo of yourself from
2009 and juxtapose it with current photo from 2019. We decided to join the
fun! Take a look at this side-by-side comparison of the January/February
2009 cover of Michigan History next to its January/February 2019
counterpart. Michigan History has seen quite a few updates since 2009,
including some design elements, content changes, and a commitment to telling
the stories of all Michigan's peoples. We look forward to continuing to
improve our magazine in the years to come!

we're up to in our latest issue!


Calling all volunteers! Michigan History DayR is in need of history
enthusiasts to volunteer as judges

We need the help of individuals with an interest in history and education to
serve as judges at the Michigan History DayR State Finals. The most
important qualities for a judge are strong common sense and an enthusiasm
for interacting with students. You should have a lively interest in history,
but not necessarily a specific background in history. We provide training in
how to judge the Michigan History Day entries, and you will be placed on
teams with experienced judges.

Judges evaluate the participants' entries and provide constructive feedback
to the students. As part of the judging process, you will have the
opportunity to interview the students who created the projects. One of the
pleasures of judging at Michigan History Day is meeting students who have a
passion for their topic!

History DayR video.
