Jury Process  

The jury will assess each submission on concept (how does this represent the way the student thinks?), content (how does this submission represent the student’s ability?), context (how does the submission represent who the student is and what the student has accomplished?), and execution (how well does the student communicate the content and value of their work?).

  • Submissions will be judged in three rounds by nationally recognized leaders and sponsor representatives.

    • Round 1: Online review of all complete submissions. The highest scored submissions will move on to Round 2 as semi-finalists.  

    • Round 2: All semi-finalists will be reviewed by the 2024 jury.

    • Round 3: All finalists will participate in a series of virtual interviews with the 2024 jury.

  • Following the interviews, the jury will select up to three 2024 Student Portfolio Competition winners.
