The weight of a criteria means how much it contributes to the total score of an application for the voting round. You can think of this as a percentage distribution towards the total score. The easiest way to set your weights is to make sure the sum of the weights across all criteria is 100.

Example A: You have 2 criteria that judges will use to evaluate submissions for your program. If both criteria have equal importance, you can set a weight of 50 for each, meaning each would contribute 50% of the total score of the submissions.

Example B: You have 3 criteria that judges will use to score program submissions. The weights of the 3 criteria can be set to 60, 20, and 20, where 60 is the weight of the key criteria, and 20 is the weight of the other 2 less important criteria.
