ABOUT

The Games for Change Student Challenge is a game design competition that invites all middle and high school students across the U.S. to create digital games about real-world issues.  Started in NYC in 2015, the Challenge has since expanded to provide year-round programming to Challenge Cities (NYC, LA, Detroit, Atlanta), including professional development in game-based learning for up to 75 teachers per city, in-school and after-school game making courses, student game jams and workshops, and mentorship by professional game designers. In Challenge Cities, the program offers citywide game design competitions that culminate in local Award Ceremonies, during which finalists showcase their games and winners are announced.  

This year we are excited to launch a national competition, inviting students everywhere to participate in the Challenge. Challenge Cities will continue to compete in citywide competitions and students from all other areas will compete on a national level.
