Judging Criteria

  • Impact
    Does the project have any feasible application and/or have a social impact that goes above and beyond? Will this help the community with a real problem they are facing? Can this realistically be implemented?
  • Functionality & Quality
    Is the project free of major bugs? Does it look appealing? The UI/UX doesn’t have to be totally perfect, but if we're having a hard time understanding and/or navigating the project by looking at it, that is an issue.
  • Creativity
    Is this project unique and innovative? Is it a solution or creation we have never seen before? Does it improve upon a current solution or is it a better way of doing something?
  • Technical Complexity
    The team should display a good level of knowledge in terms of the technology they’ve used in implementing their project. The project should also be technically interesting and use appropriate technology to meet product needs.
