Required Materials:

  • Copy of Student ID
  • One completed entry form for each entry package.
  • Written Narratives: The judges are influenced by what they see and read. And you, the entrant, provide that information. Be factual, technical and detailed in your writing.  ALL NARRATIVE INFORMATION SHOULD ALSO BE SUBMITTED IN ELECTRONIC FORMAT, as a PDF.  Include each of the following:
    • Brief Narrative: Emphasize the judging criteria attributes, as you prepare a 20 - 30 word narrative on a separate sheet (listing your name and the name of the package). This information will be included in publicity materials.
    • Expanded Narrative: You must respond to the judging criteria, with each criteria section indicated. The narrative should not exceed four double-spaced, typewritten pages.
  • Upload up to four digital photos of your package as a high resolution, 300 dpi. Acceptable file formats include.JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, .PNG, .TIFF.

Special Note:
It is to the candidate's benefit to be as detailed in the narratives as possible.

Plan on addressing these detailed criteria in your expanded narrative.  If one of the judging criteria is not applicable to your package design, then indicate this in your expanded narrative (Example: Economics. No significant cost reduction realized.). 

ALL REQUIRED FILES SHOULD BE SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY THROUGH THE ONLINE ENTRY SUBMISSION SITE ONLY.
