Thank you for considering being a judge for the inaugural Health Maker Lab Make-a-Thon. The broad guidelines for judging are provided herein. In addition, information about the judge is being requested to better understand the various perspectives the judge brings to the reviewing process. Please review, complete, and acknowledge the information below to confirm your participation as a judge during the first round of the Health Maker Lab Make-a-Thon. Please respond by Friday, January 22nd, 2021 to participate. A scoring rubric/guidelines for your review are also attached. There are three questions to answer. Each idea you receive will have the rubric on the form for your convenience.
Guidelines for Make-a-Thon Judges:
You cannot submit an idea into the competition and be a judge.
You could receive submissions to review once the application period opens. Each judge may get on average five (5) applications during the cycle to review.
It would be expected that each pool of applications would be reviewed by the judges within seven (7) business days of the receipt.
You are asked to let Carle Illinois College of Medicine Health Maker Lab executive committee members know within three (3) business days of receipt if a conflict or perceived conflict exists; such as receiving an idea from someone that you have a relationship with (including a colleague, family, friend, and mentorships). When in doubt, please check with the executive committee. You can contact us at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you were unable to review an application(s) or additional applications, you would be expected to let Carle Illinois College of Medicine Health Maker Lab executive committee know as soon as possible.
Each idea submission should be reviewed and scored using the unique link provided through the email to the online judging form. There are three questions you should think about when scoring. Each participant was asked to convey their idea by thinking about the following questions:
- What is the health-related problem you want to address?
- What is your idea for solving this problem?
- How will your solution impact the health of individuals, families and/or communities?
Video or text submissions should be viewed and scored uniformly and equally. At this stage, the idea itself with thought to the questions asked only should be considered. There is a space for optional comments or notes, however, this is not required and will not be used in the scoring process to determine the finalists. You also are welcome to give feedback to the organizers on how to further improve the judging process etc.
The 20 ideas with the highest cumulative scores from the reviewing judges will advance to the finals and will be presented by the lead submitter in a TED-talk format at the community-wide Virtual Health Make-a-Thon Competition on Saturday, April 17th.
