III - Stages

TIC Americas has two stages:

1. Semi-Finals:

Upon successful completion of the application process, and in accordance with the terms and conditions established by the competition, all registered teams will enter into an online evaluation phase, where a  Judging Committee will evaluate the teams according to the established evaluation criteria for the competition.

Only teams who have completed all requirements will receive a feedback from the organizers’ side.

Participating teams that have completed all the requirements and are selected for the next phase are considered Finalists, and will be notified by the organizers. 

Due to the high number of participants, YABT and its partners will publicly announce the Finalists through their official websites. Only finalist teams will be contacted by a YABT representative.

2. Finals:

This year, the Finals will be presented in a Virtual Format, where the Finalists and the international judging committee will interact with each other via an online platform.  Both the Finalists and the judges will be trained in the usage of the platform before the Finals.  The structure of the presentation by the Finalists will maintain its original outline.     

The Finalists will also have the opportunity to showcase their products and services within an online approach, by each having their own Landing Page and providing the relevant content about their projects to showcase to all the participants attending the online Finals activities.

The Finals is presented in a Virtual Format this year due to the commitment of strictly following the protective and security measures recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) due to the international public health emergency situation caused by the COVID-19.
