Judging Criteria

Ideation Phase

Points – each weighted the same

  1. Applicability – 20 pts

Judges will consider how effectively the solution addresses a real-world problem or caters to a specific target audience. They will examine whether the project has the potential to be implemented in a practical setting and whether it offers a viable solution to the identified problem. The more directly and effectively the solution can be applied to real-life scenarios, the higher the score in this category.

  1. Uniqueness – 20 pts

Judges will evaluate how distinct and innovative the project is compared to existing solutions in the field. They will look for novel ideas, creative approaches, and groundbreaking features that set the project apart. The more original and out-of-the-box the concept, the higher the score in this category. A truly unique project has the potential to make a lasting impact and disrupt the status quo.

  1. Feasibility – 20 pts

Judges will assess the proposed solution's technical aspects, resource requirements, and overall feasibility. They will consider factors such as scalability, cost-effectiveness, and compatibility with existing infrastructure. The higher the chances of turning the project into a reality within reasonable constraints, the higher the score in this category. Demonstrating a clear path toward implementation and outlining potential challenges and mitigation strategies can significantly boost a project's feasibility score.

  1. Clarity of thought – 20 pts

Judges will evaluate how well the team communicates their idea, including the project's goals, functionalities, and overall concept. They will look for clear and concise explanations, well-structured documentation, and effective use of visuals or demonstrations. Judges will also consider the logical flow of the project, ensuring that the team has a coherent and well-thought-out approach. The better the project is presented and documented, the higher the score in this category.

  1. Value & Relevance – 20 pts

Judges will consider the value the project brings to its target audience or stakeholders. They will assess the potential benefits, positive changes, or improvements that the solution offers. Additionally, judges will evaluate the alignment of the project with current trends, societal needs, or market demands. The higher the project's value and relevance in addressing a pressing issue or fulfilling a significant need, the higher the score in this category
