Monetary Prize Determination

The page on Prizes states that the "VA will award monetary prizes of as much as $3 Million to as many as three entrants" and that "judges will determine the number and amount of monetary prizes" and they may "determine that no prize will be awarded."

We wanted to find out what makes the difference between being awarded $50, $500, $500K, $1 Million, etc.

- What determines the monetary value of the prizes for entrants that meet the needs of the challenge?

- Will the monetary value be determined subjectively or will it be based on how many requirements the entrant's solution meets?

We look forward to your response. Thank you!
