Once you have submitted your proposed solution to the Evaluation Panel, five members will review your submission. Their scores and comments will be statistically normalized to ensure a Level Playing Field for everyone. Each of the five members assigned to you will assess your submission by providing scores and comments, using the Trait Scoring Rubric described on this page. Please take time to understand the scoring process and to review the four traits: innovative, impactful, feasible, and scalable.

After certification, the five top-scoring Finalists will be invited to attend a pitch event where the Selection Committee will determine the Winner.
