Challenge Success Criteria

Success Criteria were used by UNICEF, ARM and frog to establish what we wanted to achieve through this challenge. It was also used to guide the design of the challenge structure, as well as to filter and assess challenge entries.

Use Case Handbook

The Use Case Handbook describes specific use cases—through the lens of UNICEF Office of Innovation—so that the design, science, impact, and technology communities can work together to imagine and create solutions for some of the world’s most serious challenges that children face. These solutions will need to be created for resource-constrained environments, so understanding the context is key to success.

Design Principles

UNICEF Office of Innovation developed nine Principles for Innovation. These principles are not hard and fast rules, but meant as best-practice guidelines to inform the design of technology that could be used in development programmes, including ideas submitted for the Wearables for Good challenge.

Challenge Application Form

Applicants who submitted ideas to the Challenge were asked to consider various criteria and provide specific information as outlined in this application form. The form was embedded into a WordPress website to enable administrators to view and share applications with coaches and judges.

Judging Instructions, Round One

All 250 applications were divided across our judging panel. Judges were given this instruction sheet and scorecard to evaluate each application. Scorecards were created as Google Forms which enabled administrators to view and share and capture information.

Finalist Submission Pack

Finalists were chosen based on judges’ scorecards in Round 1. Finalists were then assigned a mentor/coach to help them expand their idea further. This document outlines the requirements all finalists were asked to submit in the Final Phase of the Challenge.

Judging Instructions, Final Round

All 10 finalist applications were divided across the judging panel. Judges were given this instruction sheet and scorecard to evaluate each application. Scorecards were created as Google Forms which enabled administrators to view and capture information.

Incubation Programme Overview

This document outlines scope, process and partnership involvement during incubation of the 2 winners. All stakeholders contributed to this document, which then helped keep the programme on track. Success of the programme was partially evaluated against goals outlined here.
