General Judging Criteria

1. Inspirational Entry or Idea

We looked for entries that make the judges sit up and say ‘wow.’ Did you think big? It doesn’t need to be a totally new area of science or engineering. In fact most breakthroughs simply continue where others left off - and we’re all for that. So, if you’re passionate enough and can prove you’ve explored things in your own way, you might just have a winning project!

2. Capacity to make an impact

Is it impactful? Could the science improve the world around us?

Judges looked closely to see if your work has value to the real world now or might in the future.

3. Passion for technology

The judges will look for young BI enthusiasts who are really passionate about what they do and how their interest can shape the future.

4. Excellence of method

Have you demonstrated real skill in the planning and doing of your dashboard?

We hope you’ve made sure that your Method / Testing and redesign works with your original Question/Proposal - and you’ve discussed the reasons for this. Remember, even if your original idea failed, it doesn’t mean it’s not a good project. Learning from mistakes is all part of succeeding.

5. Visualization, Effectiveness & Communication

Is your project presented clearly and with enthusiasm and confidence?

People all over the world are interested in InfoCepts MicroStrategy Global Contest finalists and winners. You’ll need to be able to explain your project clearly and concisely to people who might not have a science background, but you’ll also have to be able to go into the details for the real experts and judges. Your summary is very important for this.
