There will be one division 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 creativity, originality, technical merit, and how well they follow good programming practices (comments, breaking tasks or scences into methods, putting the methods on the right objects, etc). There will be two categories of awards: movies and interactive games. The movies must be at least 15 seconds long and must be less than 2 minutes long. All movies must display some text to show that the movie is over (like "The End"). 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 (as a word doc or rtf) for playing the game.

We will give awards to at least one entry in each category if there are at least 5 entries in that category. In addition we will also give out the following special awards: Most Creative, Best Comedy, Best Drama, Best Educational Game, Best Educational Movie, Best Adventure Game, Best use of Music, Best use of Sound, Best use of Dialogue, and Best Original Idea. Winners who don't attend the Awards ceremony are allowed 90 days to pick up their prize.
