Meet The Judges
All valid applications receive scores and comments from members of the Evaluation Panel. Each judge has been carefully chosen for their knowledge and experience. Top-scoring submissions may also be reviewed by MacArthur’s Board of Directors.
The Evaluation Panel Judges score and comment on each application assigned to them. Each team that submits a valid application will receive five sets of reviews that have been statistically normalized. Based on the rank order of the applications, the highest-scoring teams will be referred to MacArthur's Board of Directors for further consideration.
MacArthur’s Board of Directors will determine up to ten Semi-Finalists. At the conclusion of the Discovery Period, the Board will determine a smaller group of Finalists. After a preparation period, the Finalists will attend a live pitch event to present their solutions to MacArthur’s Board of Directors and a group of invited guests. Selection of the final award recipient rests with MacArthur’s Board of Directors.
