  • The game must be original work by the student(s) submitting the entry into the competition.

  • Only one game submission per student
  • No limit to the number of submission from a single school
  • Students can work together to create a single game (All participating students names should be included in the submission)

PLEASE NOTE: We are judging on originality, creativity, complexity and how “fun” the game is.  Hint: Make us laugh – that goes a long way with our group. Click here to view last spring’s competition winners.
