Meet The Judges
There are two types of reviews that your submission may receive: Evaluation Panel Review and Selection Committee Review. Each judge has been carefully chosen for their knowledge and experience of water sustainability in Arizona, and also for their experience with public-private partnerships, civic leadership, and/or business and entrepreneurial expertise. You can learn more about each judge here.
The Evaluation Panel Judges score and comment on each completed application assigned to them. Each team that submits an application will receive five sets of reviews that have been statistically normalized. Based on the rank order of the applications, the five highest-ranked teams will be named as Finalists and will advance to the Selection Committee.
After a preparation period, Finalists will attend a live pitch event to present their solutions to the Selection Committee who will determine the Winner of the $250,000 award. An audience of community leaders and stakeholders will also be present for the pitch presentations.
