Giving raw data would be better, such as possibly total weight of a contraption, size of parts, etc. Even official badges being used are just as bad an idea simply because you can watch one person's entry, save it as your own and get a badge you didn't earn.
Unless the score only counted for the first person to get it. You'd have a badge for first, and anything the same afterwards would be 2nd or marked as 'clone'. Also be sure to only allow 1 score per user per level else 1 person could post 50 times and flood the scoreboards.
Personally I think official scoring would make it too competitive and then there's hackers and glitchers...
