During the Competition
Each team for the duration of the 3 days will be able participate in a number of seminars, seminars are described as opening ceremonies, closing ceremonies, Morning yoga, any Sponsor speaker, any of the Coding Workshops, and more. Students are free to attend as many or as little as they like.
Each team will be required to submit a YouTube video approximately 10 minutes in length which will showcase their projects. Videos that are longer than 15 minutes and shorter than 5 minutes will not be considered. Stealing people's work will be cause for immediate cause for disqualification. Open source code is the expectation.
The deadline to submit the videos for the projects will be on November 8th 11:00 AM EST. Anything submited after the deadline will not be considered.
Submissions will be considered for all challenges but may only win one major prize per submission. The prize being paid out will be paid to all the registered participants who took part in creating the winning submission in a manner such that the total prize is distributed equally among the registered participants. For example; if a team of 4 participants is declared the winners of a major prize valued at $1000, then the 4 participants will each receive $250 in prize money. Under no circumstances will more than the amount of winnings listed for each challenge be dispersed for each respective challenge. For example; if a team of 4 participants is declared the winners of a major prize value at $1000, not more than $1000 for the winning submission.
If no submission satisfies the judges to be a winning entry according to the judgement criteria, Enactus Windsor reserves the right to declare no such winner to said prize. There will be no ability for participants to argue the results of a judgement. If the winnings are rejected by particpants responsible for submiting the winning submission, then Enactus Windsor reserves the right to (1) declare no such winner for said challenge or prize, and (2) to declare a different submission the winner of said challenge or prize.
The registered participants who submitted a winning submission have until 11:59 PM EST on November 8th, 2020 to claim their prize by communicating their intent to claim said prize for their winning submission to a member of Enactus Windsor. If registered participants fail to do so, in the manner mentioned herein, they will thereby be considered to have rejected the winnings and forfeit their claim to the prize.
