From the 30 projects from all the two Institutes and six Departments, 10 finalists were selected by the Undergraduate Project Competition Committee led by Prof. Gerald Denoga. These were included in the final judging held online on July 14. The judges were medical doctor Dr. Beatrice Ang, former UP Professor Dr. Alex Paran, and Energy Engineering Adjunct Prof. Roger Buendia.

Dr. Francis Chua provided the award funding. For the two categories, each finalist team was awarded P10,000, the Second Place Team received an additional P20,000 and the First Place Team an additional P40,000.

Judge Roger Buendia, who is in the leadership team of UPSCALE, encouraged all the finalists to get in touch with UPSCALE where they can be guided towards further developing their ideas toward market presence.
