Once your project is uploaded, a program called Turnitin will analyze your submission for plagiarism.  Submissions with more than 40% will not be accepted!  If your submission is greater than 40%, you have  the option of removing your submission, reworking the paper, and resubmitting again.  This can be done as many times as needed until the due date has passed for this Graded Assignment.  Once the Assignment is graded, it CANNOT be resubmitted for a better grade. Team members who do not assist with creating the presentation will receive a substantial grade penalty.
