Frequently Asked Questions

I'm not a Coding Lab student. Can I still participate?

This showcase is meant for our students to present their best projects. As such, we only accept Coding Lab students.
Don’t be disheartened, you can still keep a lookout for our YCGH which is open to everyone!

The video presentation is too short to judge my project! Do my project codes matter?

Your video presentation should be concise and summarise your project's main points (see below for what you should show). Of course, your codes are extremely important and the judges do grade that too. We also recognise the confidence and effort that you put into your videos, so that is also part of the judging rubrics.

What should my video presentation contain?

Your video presentation should be between 1 and 3 minutes long.

It should show:
a) Your face
b) Codes
c) Playing through your project.

Some points that you can talk about in the video:
i) Describe your project
ii) What inspired you to make it?
iii) What is the purpose of your project?

How do I do a video presentation?

You can do it with Zoom, a free tool, that you can download here. You can also access our guide to recording a video presentation by clicking here.

Alternatively, you can also use your screen recorder tool, a webcam or even stitch together videos made with your phone or DSLR. Get creative! (Don’t forget, we have the Best Presentation award!)

My video exceeded 3 minutes! Can this be accepted?

The maximum duration of your video presentation is 3 minutes. You can use any video editing software (eg. iMovie, Microsoft Photos, Adobe Premiere Pro, phone app editor) to cut it down. Otherwise, we would edit it before posting it online for votes.

I've submitted my application. Where do I upload my project and video presentation to?

Firstly, ensure that you’ve submitted your details in our application here.
You can then upload and submit your spruced up project and video presentation here.

How are social media votes calculated?

Are winners only based on votes?

Only the Most Popular award is solely based on votes. For the other prizes, judges will grade based on the codes, and votes do contribute to the final scores too.
