Elevate Hackathon

Judging

There will be two phases of judging to determine the top winners of the Elevate Hackathon. The first phase is an expo where teams will have 5 minutes to present their solution to a group of judges in a science-fair style set-up. Expo judges will use predetermined judging criteria and a judging rubric to determine the top 5 solutions.

The second phase of judging is live pitches. The top 5 teams will pitch to the entire hackathon audience and a panel of Final Judges. These judges will use the same judging criteria to determine the top 3 solutions and award prizes for first, second, and third place.

JUDGING CRITERIA

All solutions will be judged according to the below criteria:

INNOVATION: How unique is the concept of the solution?
IMPACT: How will this solution help Torontonians live better lives?
USE OF DATA & TECHNOLOGY: How well does the solution use data and/or technology?
ALIGNMENT WITH CHALLENGE: Did the presenters clearly identify the problem they are attempting to solve? Is the solution relevant to the identified challenge?
DATA PRIVACY: Does the solution consider how to protect the privacy of citizen data?
FEASIBILITY: How easily can the solution be implemented?

Prizes

There is a total of $18,000 available in prize money for teams that participate and win as well as complimentary passes to Elevate Tracks, passes to music shows, consulting and cloud services to help solutions get to market and exposure beyond the Hackathon.

1st Place Team: $10,000
2nd Place Team: $5,000
