Scratch Competition May 14, 2011

See for the entries and winners of this competition. The awards were given on Saturday May 14, 2011 from 2pm -4pm.


We had 136 registrations from 96 males and 83 females (total of 179). As far as race we had: 93 white, 66 black, 2 hispanic, 4 multi-racial, 12 asian, and 1 other register. We had 57 actual entries. Of the entries we had 43 males (49%) and 44 females (a total of 87 people). We had 61 white, 17 black, 2 multi-racial, 7 and asian.

There will be one division for elementary school students (4th - 5th graders), one for middle school students, and one for high school students. Awards will be given for both individual and group projects (up to 3 people per group). Projects will be judged based on their appeal, creativity, originality, technical merit (number of scripts, using loops, conditionals, strings, lists, messages, variables), and how well they follow good programming practices (using broadcast and receive to break long scripts into shorter ones, adding comments, good names for sprites and messages, and putting actions on the appropriate sprite). There will be two categories of awards: animations and interactive games. The animations must be at least 15 seconds long and must be less than 2 minutes long. Interactive games can be submitted as well but a video (in Quicktime or AVI format) showing someone playing the game (just the screen capture, we don't actually want to see the person playing the game) must be submitted with the game. The video of the person playing the game must be at least 15 seconds and less than 2 minutes long. You can use CamStudio or Camtasia to create the video. All interactive games must also include instructions on how to play the game.

We will give a prize to at least one entry in each category (if we have at least 5 entries in the category). In addition we will also give out the following special awards: Most Creative, Best Comedy, Best Drama, Best Educational Game, Best Educational Animation, Best Dance, Best Simulation, Best use of Sound, Most Artistic, and Best Original Idea.
