Judging Criteria

  • Technical Difficulty
    How difficult is your project and your approach to the project? Is it that first "Hello World!" code from your AP CS class (I hope not)?
  • Creativity
    Originality, ingenuity, jankiness, etc. How well does it fit the bill?
  • Presentation
    Please don't make it like the lecture you fell asleep in last week.
  • Practicality
    Is your project practical... or not so useful...?
  • Problem Solving
    Is your project solving an important problem? Or is it just to test the limits of your developing skills (fine too)?
