PITCH-AND-JUDGE

FINAL TEAM PRESENTATIONS

Parallel judging sessions were held with Quilchena Park teams and Kerrisdale Junction teams pitching their idea proposals to two separate panels. Each team had 7 minutes to pitch their idea proposal, followed by reaction commentary from the judges. At the end of both sessions, judges selected and announced one winning team from each project site. The pitch-and-judge activity provided an opportunity to further engage city staff as well as tap on the network of SCARP alumni — in this way, leveraging on the combined expertise of the panel to solicit constructive feedback and critique on the projects.
