Judging Criteria

  • Practicality
    The project correctly provides an outstanding solution to their chosen issue. If this project were to be implemented in the community, it will have a significant and lasting impact.
  • Implementation
    The project is fully or almost functional (80%-100%) and functions as intended/ completes the tasks needed to tackle their issue.
  • Design
    The design is appealing to the eye. Nothing standing out can hurt or strain peoples' eyes (ex. flashing lights, poor choice in text color). An elderly person would have no trouble figuring their way around.
  • Presentation
    The team has clearly practiced, shown teamwork skills, and evenly divided the talking amongst members. The team has shown their efforts by clearly and concisely explaining what their project is focused on, what it is, and how it solves their chosen issue.
  • Creativity
    The project tackles a not widely known issue within their community and brings awareness to the issue. The project brings a new perspective to the problem and can greatly benefit the community if implemented.
