Below mentioned rules apply in judging participants for any of the awards to be awarded during SRW 2017.

  • All participants will be judged according to the same scoring criteria and by a laymen and topic judge. Rubrics for poster and oral scoring will be posted closer to the week of SRW. 

  • All judges scores and decisions are final in regards to the competition.

  • Undergraduate students will compete against other undergraduate students and graduate students will compete against other graduate students. Undergraduates and graduates may present in the same session, but will be judged as separate groups. 

  • 1st and 2nd Place awards will be given to the highest and second highest (respectively) combined average judging scores in each subject area. In the event of a two way tie two 1st Places will be awarded and evenly split the prize of 1st and 2nd Place- there will not be a 2nd Place award given if this is the case. In the event of a two way tie for 2nd Place, the students will split the 2nd Place prize and a 1st Place award will still be given. 

  • If a subject area has less than or equal to 4 participants there will only be a 1st Place prize awarded. No 2nd Place.
