Judging Criteria

  • 20% - Originality & Creativity & Novelty
    Is the project new and something that hasn't been attempted before? How does this approach a unique solution to a problem?
  • 20% - Wow Factor
    Subjective and buzz-wordy, huh? That's what makes it fun :) We know you have something up your sleeve that's going to knock our socks off!
  • 20% - Polish / Design / Execution
    Did your team successfully execute your project concept? Is it usable? Does it work? Is it well designed? Is the user experience smooth?
  • 20% - Demo / Presentation
    You'll have 2-3 minutes for a demo to tell the judges about your project, followed by a Q/A. We're interested in the problems you solved, API's you leveraged, technologies used, and lessons learned. We recommend a quick powerpoint.
  • 20% - Multidisciplinary project
    We encourage and applaud interdisciplinary projects fueled by eclectic teams with diverse backgrounds.
