The Design Challenge
Of the millions of people in the United States who enjoy games on Google Play, 49% are women. Yet only 23% of game developers are women. To address this disparity, we joined forces with Girls Make Games and ESA Foundation to launch the Change The Game Design Challenge. The program challenged teens to design a game they’d like to play for the chance to win a $10,000 college scholarship and $15,000 for their school’s or community center’s technology program. Top finalists also received a trip to Los Angeles to attend E3, a scholarship to attend Girls Make Games Summer Camp, and more.
