What should be included in a project report?

Students submitting their community project for competition are required to submit a report detailing the implementation of their action plan. The report reflects the work students completed, the progress they have made to their goals, alongside challenges, modifications, successes, and reflection.

Requirements
The report can be up to 3,500 words, and must be submitted in a 12 point, non-script font. 

As students implement their plan in the real world, they will encounter obstacles and successes and adapt their plans accordingly. Students will document all of their implementation in their report so evaluators can see how the project has progressed. 

The report shares the details of the project with the Future Problem Solving community and the project’s evaluation team. It’s a time for students to show off all the hard work they have done. When writing, students should consider including:

  • Details about how students implemented their plan
  • Successes and accomplishments
  • Obstacles and challenges
  • How students problem-solved through challenges
  • What changes and adaptations have been made
  • How students managed stakeholders and project deliverables
  • Objective assessment of the project’s progress
  • How the project interacted with and impacted the community
  • Reflections & lessons learned
