Pages for Evaluating Criteria for Medals and Awards
The medal criteria have changed in 2019. Please read through them carefully as there are significant differences this year. For full details on the 2019 Medal Criteria, please read this page.
To make it easier for judges to find relevant documentation, we have created pages in your wiki template for specific awards and medal criteria with static (unchangeable) links. If your team wants to be evaluated for an award/medal, you will need to document your achievements related to this award/medal on these pages.
For example, if you wish to compete for the entrepreneurship award, you must document your work on https://2019.igem.org/Team:[NAME]/Entrepreneurship. Below you will find a list of all of the pages for specific awards and medal criteria in your wiki template.
The judges will be directed to these pages from static links within the judging form. If your documentation for an award is not on the page encoded by the static link, your team may not be judged for that prize.
What does this mean? Regardless of how you style your wiki, you will need to preserve the designated URLs in order to be evaluated for the awards listed below. Beware! Web design packages that create their own dynamic links will not work!
So where are the links? Your team wiki will include all of the necessary pages by default. You can refer to the list of pages below, as well. Be sure to use your official team name space. For example: https://2019.igem.org/Team:Example2.
When striving for an award, note that it is not sufficient to simply fulfill the award criteria. You will need to convince the judges that you have satisfactorily fulfilled the criteria. If the judges are not convinced after reading your documentation (on your wiki and on the Registry) and seeing your presentation and poster, you may not be awarded the prize.

Team wiki pages not tied to awards
The lists above show the wiki pages that will be evaluated by judges for specific awards and the four awards that are not tied to a specific page on your wiki. There are also a number of other pages that you are encouraged to make that the judges will look at, but not evaluate for specific awards.
While these pages are not specifically linked to prizes and awards evaluated by judges, they may be looked at by the judges, other committees, or members of the iGEM community. For example, safety is not evaluated by the judges, but is assessed by the iGEM Safety Committee.
