The Submission Deadline Has Been EXTENDED!

Due to inclement weather, we are extending the submission deadline to accommodate those who have been affected. All Mission Folders must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 6, 2013.

As a reminder, please use the following tips and guidelines to enter your project for the competition:

*Create a good first impression: The “State Your Problem” section of the Mission Folder is the first thing the Virtual Judges see. Students should think about what excites them about their project and their answers in this first section should have a “wow” factor.

*Check Mission Folders for proper grammar and spelling:  Students should also have a peer or Team Advisor review the text for grammar and spelling mistakes.

*Upload images and supplemental files that will help the Virtual Judges to score the Mission Folder: Be sure that all of the attached images or files uploaded clearly support the hypothesis or conclusions. 
     1) Notate attachments in the Mission Folder text.
     2) Verify that all of the links work:  Below is a list of acceptable file types.
