#HACK2021 Global Judging Process

Working together to sharpen our efforts and increase the impact of #HACK2021.

Judging is a core part of a mass collaboration because our desired outcome is impact. Judging is not meant in this context to encourage competition, but instead to sharpen the efforts of all participants and increase the impact of their work. The desired outcome is better work and a better story to tell about our collaborative work.

Recognition is a focus because it reminds us of the unique contribution we all make to the larger body - each is valuable!
