What is a verified program?

A verified program is a program that is high-quality, high-impact, and replicable by others.  It is clearly thought out, written coherently, and vetted by others. In addition to that, it is a program that participants enjoyed and learned from, that has a bit of a "wow" factor.  A verified program raises the knowledge level of participants, while showcasing something interesting or exciting that leaves a memorable impression on those who experience it.
