How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"?
Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is (e.g. is it easy to use or does it use a cool interface?).
Is the presentation and project polished? Is the team engaged with the project? Why did they choose to do this particular project?
Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? If a team which always does virtual reality projects decides to switch up and try doing a mobile app instead, that exploration should be rewarded.
Did the team utilize resources to tackle challenges? Did they collaborate and work well together? What did they learn from doing this project?
