Due to the amount of participants for this challenge, SOFWERX has decided to change our presentation format.

Each team will create a video (10 minutes or less) presenting their concept to SOFWERX. The video will be viewed by the judging panel prior to the event. The teams will attend the OpenWERX event 2 December virtually or in person to answer questions by the judging panel.
