Participant pitches will be judged on five core criteria:
Creativity: How unique and inventive is the project’s core concept?
Feasibility: How viable is the plan for executing, scaling, and sustaining the project?
Innovation: How well did the proposed solution reimagine a process or create a product to meet a communication need?
Potential impact: Will this proposed communication solution have a large potential impact?
Dissemination: How defined is the plan to broadly disseminate the proposed solution? How likely is that plan to succeed?
Judges will only consider work that was done at the Gupta Family Hackathon for Health Communication.
Each judge will score each team presentation individually, and all judges’ scores will be tallied to select award winners. The “best presentation” award will be chosen by people’s choice.
