Judging Criteria

  • Technical Difficulty
    Did the hack tackle a difficult technical problem? This can reward projects that might be difficult conceptually but area great ideas. We love original ideas that are ambitious and unique.
    Does the hack have a social/worldly impact? Will it influence change in a community or area? We want to reward people for thinking about others, and making the world a better place.
    Is the hack a novel solution, or something clever that you haven’t seen or thought of before? Ideas along these lines are exciting and fun in their use of technology.
    Did something really just knock-your-socks-off? This can be felt more often than explained, and is sometimes different for different people.
