The G4C Student Challenge competition is currently open for submissions – and students now have more time to create their digital games! The G4C Student Challenge is a game design competition that challenges middle and high public school students in NYC, LA, Atlanta and Detroit to design and code games about social impact themes. Finalists will be invited to showcase their games at culminating award ceremonies (in each city) and winners will receive a bevy of cool prizes including technology, games, theme-related opportunities and one-of-a-kind experiences. Grand prize winners will receive a $1,000 Scholarship, generously provided by Take-Two Interactive.

EXTENDED DEADLINES:

  • April 12 – Los Angeles / Atlanta
  • April 18 – New York City / Detroit.

COMPETITION RESOURCES & TOOLS:

We hope that these extended dates offer students enough time to create a project they are proud to submit, even if it is still a work in progress!  As a reminder, students are welcome to submit their projects even if the game is not 100% complete or bug-free; they can utilize the competition entry form to share details about additional levels or improvements they plan to incorporate.

Students can create games as an individual or in teams of up to four people. To be considered for the competition, games must be created using an open/free platform and accessible to play via a URL. Games must also address one of this year’s Student Challenge themes: Automated Communities 2050, Endangered Species, Disrupt Aging: Implications of Living 100. Additionally, students in NYC can submit games about Gender Equity, Diversity & Inclusion.  For more information (including game guidelines and eligibility requirements) and to submit a game visit the competition portal: bit.ly/g4c_challenge.
