On event day, your team will have a maximum of 10 minutes to present to the five judges and convince them that your idea is worth investing in.

Spring Saturday programs are the same for sophomores and juniors, but high school seniors are scheduled with individual admission counselor appointments and campus tours. Everyone who visits on a Saturday is welcome to stay after the program for brunch in our dining hall (when Drake students begin waking).
