2021-2022 NFTE World Series of Innovation First Round Judging

NFTE’s World Series of Innovation is a global educational experience that  invites young people ages 13-24 to get involved in solving the biggest challenges facing humanity today and help advance the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

NFTE is pleased to offer challenge partners and other volunteers in the NFTE community the opportunity to participate at this level of the World Series of Innovation. Volunteers are invited to judge student submissions and determine the top solutions for the challenge.

Judges are tasked with reviewing the submissions and providing evaluation based on the NFTE WSI rubric. Each submission will be evaluated by multiple judges to ensure parity and all scores will be averaged to establish the ranking of entries and determine the ten finalists. See additional program details below.

Date Range: Monday, January 10, 2022 through Friday, January 21, 2022 at 11:59 PM
Time Commitment: 2-3 hours, you will have the option to sign up for the date and time that works best for you once you express interest in the volunteer opportunity.  Please note you will have from January 10, 2022 through January 21, 2022 to evaluate the submissions at your own pace.

Preparation: WSI Judging/Platform Guide & optional video tutorial (15 minutes)

lthough judging may take you 2 to 3 hours total, it does not need to be done all at once.  You can save your progress as you work;  you will have 11 days to complete your scoring. First round judging begins on January 10 and ends on January 21.  However, for tracking and data purposes, we need you to select a 3 hour time window.  Once you have registered as a judge, NFTE will send you prep materials to serve as judge as well as a login and password to the judging website.
