Games for Change Presents: A Game Design Contest to Win $35,000!

In Games for Change’s first-ever public design competition, we will award a prize of  $35,000 to create a prototype of a safe sex awareness game. The game will developed for and in collaboration with Answer, a progressive, tech-savvy organization that has more than 30 years experience providing and promoting sexuality awareness to young people.

As part of the competition, three finalists will be selected to present their ideas on stage at the 10th Anniversary Games for Change Festival (June 17-19), with the full attention of attendees, media, potential funders and a juried panel. The winning concept will then be announced at the festival in front of a live audience.

The final game will be featured on, Answer’s site that reaches millions of teens each year with life-enhancing—and often life-saving—sexuality and sexual health information.
