Change the Game Design Challenge


Participant showing off her Game Design Doc!

We've joined forces with Google Play Change the Game and the ESA Foundation to challenge teens to use their creativity and skills to develop a game idea, and to take their first step towards change.

We're calling on the next generation of game-makers to share their mobile game design ideas and what they want to see for the future of gaming.

The top 5 finalists will win a VIP trip to an exclusive experience at E3 in Los Angeles. There, they can showcase their game ideas and join a celebration of women in gaming. The Grand Prize Winner will also receive a $10,000 college scholarship, a $15,000 technology contribution to their school, a Scholarship to Girls Make Games Summer Camp, and more.
