- Clearly thought out? Complete, yet concise?)
- The innovative or original nature of the idea or solution.
- The extent to which the idea provides a solution to the problem.
During the competition , finalists will be given 10 minutes (8 minutes for their PowerPoint presentation and 2 minutes for questions anyone may have ). Do not be afraid to be creative and make adjustments where you see fit.
As stated in the rules, finalists will be evaluated in a new round of judging based on an eight- (8) minute PowerPoint presentation to the judges by the individual entrant or team in front of an audience of peers, faculty, entrepreneurs and distinguished guests. These presentations will take place in a program.
