Judging Criteria

  • Design
    Does your hack look good? Good design can stem from many factors: appealing looks, ease-of-use or creativity. Good design must also fit the nature of the hack, because what design works well for a game might not for a utility app.
  • Technical challenge
    How difficult was it to implement the tech you worked with into a working demo? Don't forget members of the nomination committee will actually have a hands-on experience with your hack.
  • Originality
    How original, smart, unexpected or out-of-the-box is your idea?
  • Presentation
    How did hackers present their hack during the science fair?
