Pages for Evaluating Criteria for Medals and Awards
New in 2017:
The medal criteria have changed in 2017. Please read through them carefully as there are significant differences this year.
There are now two pages where you can fulfill a medal criterion and compete for a special award with a single page. These pages are Gold Integrated and Model. Your team can complete the Gold Integrated page to compete for the HP gold medal criterion (gold #1) and the integrated HP award. You can compete for both the model gold medal criterion (gold #3) and the best model award.
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 http://2017.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.
Why are we making this change? Since specific pages on your wiki can be hard to find, we created these evaluated pages with static links to help the judges find the information they need to evaluate specific awards. When you create your project wiki, you are not limited to using only these evaluated pages, however; you may organize additional project information as you wish.
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: http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2.
Remember: 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), you may not be awarded the prize.
Below are links to the team "Example2" evaluated pages for medal criteria. For your own pages, please replace "Example2" with your team name to find the page on your wiki, or navigate to that page using the menu in your team namespace.
All criteria must be met:
- Bronze #1: No special page required.
- Bronze #2 (Deliverables): Complete all items on the deliverables page: http://2017.igem.org/Competition/Deliverables. No special wiki page required.

- Bronze #4 (Contribution or Interlab): http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/Contribution and/or http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/InterLab
All criteria must be met:
- Silver #1 (Part data): Part number in your part number range is required when filling out the judging form. Data must be on the Part main page on the Registry. You must also submit this part to the Registry to achieve this medal criterion.
- Silver #2 (Collaborations): http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/Collaborations
- Silver #3 (Human Practices Silver): http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/HP/Silver
At least two (2) criteria must be met:
- Gold #1 (Human Practices Gold): http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/HP/Gold_Integrated
- Gold #2 (Improve a previous part or project): Improve the function of an existing BioBrick Part. The original part must NOT be from your 2017 part number range. If you change the original part sequence, you must submit a new part. In addition, both the new and original part pages must reference each other. http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/Improve.
- Gold #3 (Model): http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/Model
- Gold #4 (Demonstrate your work): Convince the judges that your project works. http://2017.igem.org/Team:Example2/Demonstrate

|Award:||Link to page be edited:|

Awards with no required evaluated page:
- Best Wiki
- Best Poster
- Best Poster
- Track Awards (based on total body of work, not any specific page)
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 evaluated by judges, they may be looked at by 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.
