  • Originality
    How is your project unique to you? How does it stand out from other projects that are at Hacklahoma, or already out in the world?
  • Impressiveness
    That "wow" factor is important to keep in mind for your hack. How did you go above and beyond?
  • Learning
    Did you push yourself or minimize your skills and effort? Did you overcome any challenges or did you do it with your eyes closed? The risks you took play a big role here.
