Categories & Judging

In March, judging will take place virtually. In traditional technology fairs students would be interviewed by judges; however, this year that will not take place. To maintain the integrity of this process, there will not be any interaction between the judges and the students during the evaluation process. The judges will be using the folder link to the project and any other information to evaluate.

All video projects will be judged by the following:

  • Originality – Was the entry original, creative, and imaginative in content and implementation?
  • Clarity – Was the student presentation to the judge clear? (Nervousness will not count against the student)
  • Documentation – Did the student receive and document all required permissions?
  • Appropriateness – Was the technology/software used appropriately matched?
  • Design – Does the overall design support the project purpose?

During the video presentation, students will be required to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the software in relation to the project.
  • Explain various aspects of the project’s creation.
  • Defend the software selection for the project.
  • Answer given questions about the project.
