G4C Student Challenge
now open for submissions!
We've opened the submission portal for middle and high school students participating in the Games for Change Student Challenge. Games must be submitted by April 30.

If you know a middle or high student in New York City who likes to code, please help spread the word! There’s still time to prototype a game for the chance to win prizes, such as paid internships, design classes, and gaming gear.

The G4C Student Challenge is open to all middle and high school students enrolled in NYC public schools. Games must be playable on a web browser, and address one of the five Challenge themes: Animal Welfare, Smart Cities, Civic Journalism, Literacy or Youth Justice.

For more information on eligibility and submission guidelines, visit the Student Challenge website.

The G4C Student Challenge is expanding!
We're planning to bring the Challenge to additional U.S. cities in the 2016-17 school year. If your organization is interested in getting involved or supporting this program, please email Project Director Sara Cornish.
