Evaluation Panel judges will score and provide feedback on the applications assigned to them using the scoring rubric, and each valid application will receive five sets of reviews with scores that have been statistically normalized to ensure a level playing field. Informed by the resulting rank order of applications after Evaluation Panel review, up to ten winners will be selected. More judges will be announced in the coming weeks.
The Selection Committee will be comprised of Greater New Orleans Foundation team and board members who will review top-scoring submissions and select up to ten winners based on considerations that may include, but are not limited to, Evaluation Panel resulting rank order, organizational capacity, geographic diversity, and feasibility. More information will be shared in the coming weeks.
