The judging process is unchanged for 2020 and the papers are judged on their merit and given the appropriate ranking. The ratio of the rankings are not predetermined and are based on the quality of the submissions for that given year. The designations and awards from previous years will be unchanged for 2020.

We hope that this alternate date will allow for more student teams affected by public health measures to participate.
