Below is the agenda with a few things we will talk about. Under that, please add your name/city to the Attendees list when you join the call. And down at the bottom is the place to add your questions!

Quick reminder that the Waitlist functionality of the website doesn't work (participants unable to register at all once registration capacity has been hit, waitlist unavailable for download by location administrators)
Do people need to register to Data Bootcamp or does the same registration apply to Space Apps and Data Bootcamp? Is the global organizer interested in the registration information of Bootcamp? Is there only one registration form?
Focus is Women in Data, many of the sessions will be led by women experts
Local sites are not required to host a bootcamp
Basic criteria available at spaceappschallenge.org but you have control over judging at your local event
Local awards and prizes
We want to encourage an environment of collaboration so prizes should not be so big that teams are reluctant to collaborate or share information because they are competing against each other for a big prize!
Nominations for global judging
Local leads are being asked to select two teams for global judging
1 month after Space Apps, NASA will select 5 global winners to be invited to a NASA launch event
Projects being submitted for global judging will be asked to create a 1 minute video to present projects to NASA judges in the week following Space Apps.
Nomination for People's Choice
In addition to 2 global nominees, sites will submit a people's choice from local sites
We hope everyone will have their stickers by the end of March, but cannot be sure of shipping times for international sites. Once stickers are shipped, we will have tracking information and can track their progress.
