Each design must include detailed drawings/sketches/layouts for the exhibit. 2. Exhibit specifics, other than those detailed here, may be determined by the individual designer. 3. A full write-up of the exhibit must be presented. 4. Exhibits will be rated and ranked on specific, measurable criteria. 5. Only one submission per user (first submission is final).
