As the program nears the finish line, students will present their ideas to a panel of business professionals for the chance at scholarship awards and potential internships. (That’s where you come in!) Judges should be business owners, professionals or entrepreneurs with a passion for working with young adults in a creative setting. This is not only an opportunity to invest in our future leaders, but also to scout up-and-coming talent!


WHAT DO JUDGES NEED TO KNOW?

  • The Launch Pad final event will take place virtually 8am-11am on June 3. All judges must be available for that time frame.

  • Judges will be placed in appropriate categories based on expertise and paired with a fellow judge.

  • Project submissions should be reviewed ahead of live, virtual student presentations that will take place June 3, 2021.

  • Scoring criteria is outlined in a judging rubric to provide analysis of the business plan and presentation.

  • On competition day, judges should review tradeshow booths applicable to their assigned category.

  • Judges will decide on category winners to move on to the final competition. Judges will then deliberate in a live session to decide the overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

  • Judges no longer need to be in Broome County! All judging will take place virtually, so applicants may be from anywhere in the United States.
