G4C Student Challenge

The Games for Change (G4C) Student Challenge is a national game design program that invites students to create digital games about issues impacting their communities. The Challenge is run in cities across the United States, and includes professional development in game-based learning for 20 teachers per city, in-school and after-school game making courses supported by curriculum partner Mouse, student game jams and workshops, mentorship by professional game designers and social issue themes with multimedia content provided by cause-based partners. The program culminates with awards ceremonies and public exhibitions of student games at local cultural institutions in each city, and both games and work-related opportunities as prizes.
