Here's how judging will work / how you should set up your pitch:

We’ll be holding a judging fair from 2-4 pm.  You’ll need to prepare a 2 minute pitch (including demo and question time).  The format of this pitch is entirely up to you – slides, live demo, whatever you like. 

Be at your table and ready to present no later than 2:00 pm.  Five teams of four judges each will be circulating through the tables starting promptly at 2:15; you’ll have at least five opportunities to pitch to the judging teams (don’t worry, the judges will tell you who they are).  There will also be sponsors, challenge leaders and others walking through the fair – you should practice your pitch to them!
