Project Rubric (Level 1)
One to four students present the project for Level One Judges at Regional Events. Selected Projects will be invited to State Semifinals (Level 2) judging at the State Championship, with the goal of making it to Level 3 judging and possibly being named “Best Project in Kentucky” for your Division (K-5, 6-8, or 9-12).
Review the rubric while you plan your project. The rubric should guide your presentation and preparation for Regionals.
What the students do:
Students create and carry out the project. During judging, students have up to 10-minutes to describe project, answer judges’ questions and demonstrate any materials/products. Hand completed copy of Regional Showcase Project Planner document to judges. A score of at least 85 out of 100 possible points will qualify the project for State Championship Level 2 judging.
Because projects can be “in progress” and not yet completed, each team should be especially prepared to discuss development plans, ways they intend to measure success, and who they intend to collaborate with to complete the project. Essentially, at Regionals, teams strive to convince judges their project idea/development plan is strong enough to deserve another several months to accomplish their project goals before State.

Each team is required complete the Project Planner prior to attending the Regional Qualifier. Completed copies of your finished Project Planner should be available for judges at the event.
The Project Planner guides teams to reflect upon their project (or planned project) by identifing at least six (6) individual indicators that have been/will be addressed during their project cycle. In other words, from the 24 individual indicator blocks describing how a standard can be applied, choose at least six (6), identify your selected indicators on your Project Planner sheet, and be prepared to discuss how those standards/indicators apply to their project.
STLP Coordinators/Teachers are encouraged to assist teams in identifying and understanding the standards and indicators on the Rubric and Project Planner. Once STLP Coordinators/Teachers review the technology standards listed on the Project Planner sheet, they will most likely realize that each project easily addresses more than six of the standards.
With the standards your team is prepared to discuss clearly marked on your Project Planner sheet, Regional: Level 1 judges may ask students how those standards apply to their project. A hefty 30 points on the rubric is dedicated to teams being able to discuss at least six (6) of the standards as they apply to their Showcase Project. Addressing only 1-5 of the standards will earn your team a reduced 15 points, and not addressing any standards will earn a team zero (0) points for that category on the Level 1 rubric.
