2013 Healthivores Video Game Contest – Simple and Rewarding Approach to Student Game Design

Okay, I love to share. But to be honest, today's sharing is a little tough. Why? Because I am sharing news about an exciting and engaging video game design contest with you. Why is that tough? Because last year, students from our district won 1st place in the nation and now I'm inviting more competition! Yikes!

All kidding aside, this is a great contest that teaches students video game design in a simple and understandable format and also teaches them about content areas such as fitness and nutrition, math, science, or technology. Our students had a blast doing this last year and I hope yours will too.
Here's a announcement sent to me directly from Shanti from Green Ribbon Schools:

Are you a teacher with zero video game design experience? NO PROBLEM! This year’s Healthivores Video Game Contest has begun and its easier than you think. Check out the included Lesson Plan that will take teachers, even those with zero game design experience, step-by-step through the process of teaching your students to design games.

You will have your students completing their video games in less than 4 weeks. This year we have added Technology, Science and Math focused Lesson Plan options to the already popular Nutrition and Fitness Lesson Plan.

Each winning team will receive one laptop for the teacher, one for the school and one for each student on the team (See 2012 Winners here). Deadline for entry is March 31, 2013 (allow 4 weeks for completion of Lesson Plan). Get started now at the Healthivores Video Game Contest homepage!
