Edutainment – Student Video Game Design Competition

The Challenge

Your challenge is to create an edutainment game for a younger grade or a game to affect a positive change in your peers. Your game must help to teach subject matter that is specific to the grade selected. The game should engage students in STEM, Language, History, Health or Social Science. Or you may choose to deal with a Social Issue that you want to call attention to or to help drive a positive change.

Your edutainment game must be appropriate to the target audience. The game must have a storyline, and the play should support the theme of the game. The game must have the player progress to the second level of play. A description of 2 additional levels of game play should be included in the submission documentation for your game.
We await your entry eagerly.

We believe there is power in the creativity and skills of students. In this challenge, we are giving you a voice to speak out, teach, share and help others through your unique perspective, talents, and passion for game design.
