Multimedia projects are defined as computer-based reports or creative presentations using any combination of sound and/or images with text. Possible software used for projects in this category include but are not limited to: Power Point, KidPix, AppleWorks, Astound, Storybook Weaver, and HyperStudio. If appropriate to the project, a storyboard may be displayed to show sequencing of project creation.
Videos do not go in this category. Any hyperlinks need to be captured one level deep as it is not guaranteed that Internet access will not be available. NO tri-boards are allowed. The computer is required to display the project.
You may have up to 2 people on a team but teams and individuals will compete against each other within each grade grouping. Regardless of the length of the project, the judge time is 15 minutes. Judges may only view a portion of the actual project. Judges will use a category rubric as a guideline for exemplary characteristics of projects in this category. Students should use the rubric as a guide for what judges are looking for.
