Jury Criteria

Jury will score each piece based on a criteria below


How strong is the impact of the piece (by scale, color, character, humor, subject matter, and/or other factor)


How well are the sculptures constructed; are seams, joints, cuts, etc done in a professional manner?  Is the sculpture structurally sound?  

Material Usage

Clever use, whimsy, usefulness, secret meanings & statements appreciated! 


Are the lines, shapes, colors, and proportions aesthetically pleasing and/or appropriate to the piece?


Did the team have and successfully express a unique concept or approach to their project

In case of a tie

If there is a tie in scoring, jurors will rescore the tied pieces, then discuss and agree on the final prize order of the three overall highest-scoring pieces. This may or may not agree with the point scores.
