Entry Tips from Judges


  • Highlight customer success stories and case studies that advance the industry.
  • Describe the problem addressed and its importance
  • List relevant technologies/products used on the project
  • Identify key results and quantify the ROI associated with the project (e.g. man-hours or $ saved; new capabilities)
  • Quantify the resources expended (hours, personnel, $)
  • Explain broader impact on the community/ industry


  • Enter promotional “brochure-ware” or rewrite press releases
  • Make vague, unsupported qualitative claims
  • Emphasize technology (product) features over project results—integrate the two
  • Forget to clearly identify positive results/benefits!
