Teams will need to submit their apps on my.technovationchallenge.org by Monday, April 20, 2020, at 19:00 UTC.
Judging use this rubric to assign scores. We have two rounds of judging: first round and semifinals.
Judging takes place either a) online via Online Judging or b) in-person via Regional Pitch Events from April 23 to May 25, 2020. There is no advance of one style of judging vs. another.
- Regional Pitch Events (RPEs, only in certain locations) - Local RPEs will appear on teams’ dashboards. At RPEs, teams will have the opportunity to pitch live to a panel of judges - the top scoring teams will advance to semifinals. If you have questions about whether your team can participate in an RPE, you can consult your mentor or your Regional Ambassador. Learn more about RPEs here.
- Online judging - Teams participating virtually will be judged online, grouped by division. Their submissions will be scored by a panel of online judges from around the world. Teams in locations with RPEs can also choose this style of judging if they do not elect to attend their event.
The top-scoring teams from the Regional Pitch Events and Online judging will advance to the Semifinals. We will announce the Semifinalists in early June. All semifinalists will go through another round of online judging.
From these teams, judges will select 10 finalist teams (5 teams in each division) and 10 regional winners. Finalist teams are awarded a trip to the World Pitch Summit. Learn more about our awards here.
