Judging Session Format
The general format for each judging session is outlined below:
- Log on 5 Minutes Early: Your team should plan to be online and join the judging sessions five (5) minutes before the scheduled start time. This will allow you time to do a technology check.
- Project Overview - 5 minutes: During the first five minutes of your assigned slot, your team may provide an overview of your project or point out key updates since the Wiki Freeze. Those 5 minutes are yours to use however you want. You will be able to share your screen to show slides, a video, wiki pages, or other materials on your computer.
- Judge Q&A - 20 minutes: Your judges will use this time to ask your team questions.
- Transition to Next Team - 5 minutes: The next team in the session will join the room and get ready for their judging session.
Remember that only student team members and student team leaders are allowed to present materials and answer questions during the Judging Session!
