New File Option!: Beginning with the 2013 contest, students may export their PowerPoint presentations to video and upload these files directly. This gives the added advantage of insuring that no unintentional changes will occur during the poster conversion process on our website, and the presentation will play for the judges in exactly the manner intended by the author. Standard video formats will be accepted (.wmv, .mp4, .mpg, and .avi), and the presentations must conform in every way to the remaining contest guidelines, including limitations on playing time and copyrighted content. Video files which exceed the time limit, or do not adhere to published copyright standards may be returned to the contestant for revision.
The Vision of Hope Foundation Committee will rate the presentations according to the following criteria:
- Overall Presentation
- Leadership Vision
When judging is complete, the three (3) highest scores will be contacted and invited to the 2014 OAA State Leadership Conference. Prizes will be awarded in the form of travel and lodging. In the event that a designated winner is unable to participate in the OAA leadership meeting, the next-highest score will be deemed a winner in their place.
