Each team will need to demo a prototype or share a robust concept on Demo Day. Here are some rules to follow. We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably (read: definitely) stick by these:

  1. Fresh Code - We all start coding at the same time. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.

  2. Code Review - Winning teams may be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh. For all of you non-techies, no worries. The techies on your teams will explain what this means.

  3. Ownership and IP - You own your IP and whatever you create. Simple as that. You agree that Make-A-Wish may implement and scale your solution.

  4. Team Size - No more than five people on a team. Don't have a team - no worries; we will help you find one.

  5. Submissions - The most important. Check your email for the submission form. Projects need to be submitted by the designated time on Challenge Day. You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to do just that.

  6. Demos - You’ll have 4 minutes to demo the functionality of your project and talk through your idea, and 2 minutes for Q&A from judges.

  7. Be cool to your fellow hackers! Check out our Code of Conduct.
