Rules Code of Conduct Each team member should review the competition Rules and Code of Conduct document. Each team captain should arrange for his/her/their team members to electronically sign the Rules and Code of Conduct document and return it via a Drop Box File Request Link to EGHI by no later than Friday, March 12. EGHI accepts typed signatures on the form. Teams should only submit ONE form per team.
Judging During the first round of the competition, pairs of judges with expertise in the case subject and/or business and entrepreneurship will evaluate teams' submissions remotely. A separate panel of judges will evaluate the final-round teams' virtual slide presentations. As in previous competitions, judges will be blind to teams' university affiliations. EGHI will use an online judging platform called RocketJudge for the first round of the 2021 competition. Final-round judges will deliberate on the ranking of the final-round teams immediately after the final round presentations conclude. Student teams will receive the first- and final-round judging criteria when the case is released. For more information about the judging process, please review the Judging Overview document.
The directory of judges with links to their biographies is available here.
