  • Window to winning is always follow the guidelines. Following the set of guidelines will definitely avoid disqualification and put you forward to potential winners’ column.
  • Indicate sources of the data/results you are providing and describe the fundamental details associated with it. To generate a positive impression about you or your initiative, it is recommended that you use evidence coming from autonomous sources rather than your own. Give elaborate reasoning to compliment your data and try to validate it as much as possible, for example by the use of opinion poll results.
  • New and Unique Approach! The use of creative techniques to demonstrate your accomplishments is likely to impress the judges. This may involve merging two previous chunks of data or providing measurement techniques to evaluate multiple objectives.
  • No bloating. Keep your answers as genuine as possible. Not all elements are measurable easily. It is always favorable to explain and not enhance the successes.
  • Even the smallest of evidence can prove to be crucial. That is why it is important to provide some instead of nothing at all. Small evidences can be highlighted in other forms such as results, pictures, videos which will help enhance your overall answer.
  • Relate to your Goal and Objectives. Clearly indicate your objectives and give a detailed description of the tools you would use to gauge your progress. Additionally, use those measurements to demonstrate the effectiveness of those tools. Be descriptive but direct while giving an overview of your results. Statistical data helps.
  • Surely, brevity and visual appeal do matter. Brief and concise articulation of material facts and with particular reference to entry criteria and competitive advantage is most of the time appreciated by any readers or judges in this case. Supporting documents with graphs or images to go along with the data, results and information you are providing, will leave a pleasant impression on the judges.
