Games For Change Student Challenge NYC

Updated: Feb 22

Calling all Middle and High School Game Designers:


The 5th annual Games for Change Student Challenge competition is now open for submissions, and this time it’s open to all students nationwide


Students across the country have been working hard all year to design digital games focused on social impact themes, and now we want to see them! Until March 31, middle and high school students across the country can enter their games in the Challenge for the chance to win national recognition and a bevy of cool prizes! 'Spotlight Cities' that receive year-round programming (New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Atlanta) will continue to compete in local, citywide competitions, while all other students will compete on a national level.


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: A Clean & Happy Earth, Inclusive Play: Designing Games For All, Get The Party Started, and How The Human-Animal Bond Benefits People And Pets.


Visit the G4C Student Challenge website to learn more about the theme topics and to access game design resources. 


Each game will be evaluated by panels of industry jurors on Gameplay, Originality, Use of Theme, and Wow Factor. Winners will be announced by June 2020. 

For more information and to submit a game, check out the competition portal: bit.ly/g4c_challenge. The submission deadline is March 31st, so don’t delay; submit today! 



We look forward to playing your impact games!
