Rubrics and the process for judging posters ideas
- Posters will be judged on five criteria, two criteria evaluating the quality and practicality of the idea and two criteria evaluating the effectiveness of the student presenting the problem and their solution and one criteria for answering the questions of the judges. $1,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to poster competitors.
- Each POSTER IDEA entrant will be judged three to five times and each judging process will last about 7-12 minutes for each judging session. Entrants can be single individuals or a team of maximum five students.
- Contestants must have prepared and share with the judges a 1-2 minute summary presentation of the problem they are addressing, the solution they are proposing, the evidence they have that the solution is viable or practical and their call to action or next steps.
