This just in: the deadline for the 2022 G4C Student Challenge competition has been extended to April 15!
You read that right. We are giving students another whole week to polish and put the finishing touches on their games to better their chances in the competition. There’s now time to add another level, cut scene, or anything else students were pressed for time to do before. Use this time wisely, because the prizes for this year’s competition are bigger and better than ever before!
Students are competing to win cool prizes like games and technology. All winners will receive prizes for their work. The National Champion will receive a $10,000 scholarship, generously provided by Take-Two Interactive.
When ready, students submit their games by filling out a form on the competition portal:
WHO CAN COMPETE?
The competition is open nationally to all students in middle/high school (grades 5-12) in the US.
