POWERPOINT PRESENTATION

NONPERFORMANCE EVENT

The PowerPoint competition entry is to be a user-directed, stand-alone presentation using no live

Internet links. The student is free to use any element that PowerPoint will support, as long as the

presentation does not violate the A.C.E. standards of dress, appearance, and conduct as presented

in these guidelines.

TYPES OF ENTRIES

1. Linear—Presentation begins and runs through to an end. In a linear presentation, there

is a set sequence to the presentation, starting at the beginning and continuing to the

conclusion. No navigation is required.

2. NonlinearUser is given navigational control and can wander through the content at

will. In a nonlinear presentation the user can pick and choose, using a random route

through the presentation.

REQUIREMENTS

1. The presentation must have been developed since the last International Student

Convention.

2. No more than two students may participate in the design and development of the

presentation.

3. While there are a number of presentation products on the market, Microsoft PowerPoint

is required for Student Convention competition.

4. It is recommended that the presentation be available on a CD-ROM. (A 3.5 inch floppy

diskette is also acceptable.)

5. Designers must give proper credit for any copyrighted material.

6. Any Scripture referenced must be from the King James Version. All subject matter

(photos) must meet the A.C.E. dress and appearance guidelines.

CRITERIA

Navigation of Site (applicable to nonlinear presentations)The presentation should be easy to

use and navigate.

CreativityThe presentation will be evaluated for creativity in the areas of uniqueness, content,

approach to the material, and method of engagement.

ConnectivityEach step in the process must successfully relate the user to where he has been

and where he is going. The user should understand throughout the presentation the relationship

of the parts to the whole.

Engaging AppearanceThe presentation is visually attractive and interesting. It creates

interest and effectively conveys information to the user in a memorable fashion.

ElementsThe presentation should contain enough variety to hold the interest of the user while

following Convention guidelines and standards of appropriateness. All the elements contribute

to the presentation’s effectiveness in meeting its objective. Presentations may include copied

folders from websites (live Internet links are not acceptable), video clips, sound bites,

photographs, etc.

Please note: All elements of PowerPoint presentations must meet A.C.E.

standards.

Graphic DesignThe project should follow generally accepted media standards regarding

presentation. Some of these regard font styles, spacing, overlay, and other aspects of the

presentation.

presentation, navigation, and purpose. Since this is a user-directed presentation, clarity is

indispensable.

appropriate for its intended purpose.

UsefulThe presentation should be designed to serve a useful purpose.

understand what the developer intended.

a visually attractive presentation. For help with graphic design there are a number of helpful

sites on the Web. Be sure that all elements in your presentation meet the A.C.E. standards

(background music, video clips, photos, etc.).
