Multimedia Applications are projects defined as computer-based reports or creative presentations using any combination of sounds 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 since Internet access will not be guaranteed. NO tri-boards are allowed.
The project must be displayed on a computer in the program in which it was created. The students should be prepared to demonstrate to judges how the software was used to create the finished project.
You may have up to 2 people on a team, but teams and individuals will compete against each other within each grade band.
Regardless of the length of the project, the judge time is 10 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.
