Project Guidelines and Judging
Please visit the Categories page for information on allowed projects.
Depending on the project, students will not have access to the judging room prior to judging. Parents are not allowed in the judging area. If necessary, a staff volunteer at the event can assist the competitor. If the student needs set up time (i.e. Robotics or case modification), please notify the director to make arrangements.
ONLY students, judges, and staff are allowed in the judging areas.
General Judging begins at 9:00 am. Judge periods are 15 minutes for ALL categories. To allow time for judges to fill out the Student Feedback form, students should be prepared to explain and demonstrate the highlights of their project in no more than 15 minutes. Projects are evaluated by the judges to determine the best project in that category. The judges use several instruments for making their evaluation. Judges will provide each student with a feedback form listing strengths, weaknesses, and suggestions for each project. Actual scoring materials will NOT be released. All equipment needed, such as computers, monitors, cables, etc. must be provided by the participants. No projection devices may be used. All software used in the project must be pre-loaded on the computers. Please do not bring desktop computers that must be plugged in. Students will not have access to outlets to run their devices. Please supply laptops or tablets that are charged prior to the event.
Students and schools are responsible for the safety and security of their equipment and software, not the competition host. Anyone engaging in actions that could be harmful to another participant’s project will be disqualified. Participants MUST provide computers/devices for projects. Note: No tri-boards or large displays are allowed. Mazes are allowed for Robotics.
