Judging Criteria

Presentation Guidelines

  • Participants must identify themselves using fictitious team names and ensure that their university names or geographic location is not disclosed. Breaking this rule may result in disqualification from the competition.
  • No huddling/conversation will be allowed between team members during the Q&A periods of presentations. This means that after your 20-minutes is over, you will enter the 10-minute Q&A period immediately and will have to answer the questions without consulting your team members first.
