With a population that is 48 percent Hispano and more than 10 percent Indigenous, fewer than 10 percent of the judges for New Mexico’s National History Day program are people of color. We are working to change this. Thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and partnerships with universities, colleges, and school districts, New Mexico History Day will be conducting a series of intensive, 3-hour judge training workshops across the state in January and February. The workshops are designed for professional educators, who will be eligible for a $130 stipend, as well as pre-service teachers and history students. Some professors may offer extra credit for participation. Each session can accommodate up to 20 participants.

• January 18th -19th in Silver City
• January 22nd – 23rd in Las Cruces
• January 29th – 30th in Portales
• February 5th Farmington (virtual)
• February 8th – 9th in Albuquerque
• February 12th -13th in Las Vegas
