The 2013 Challenge is open to submissions! Middle and high school youth are encouraged to submit their original game designs for the opportunity to earn recognition and prizes for themselves, as well as monetary prizes for their schools. Check out below for more information on the prize categories, eligibility and streams for 2013. Then, head over to the Students section to learn about the many tools you can use to make your game and start designing! Have questions about game design? Our new community forum will soon be open for aspiring young designers to get feedback, advice and encouragement from top game design professionals.
This year, we are also offering mentors opportunities to get involved through toolkits, resources and curriculum, all of which can be found on the Mentors tab above.
