The Competition

In the Games 4 Girls Competition, teams of up to four college women create computer games specifically designed to be fun for middle or high school age women. The entries are judged by high school girls. The award for the winning team is $2000 plus a $500 donation to the winning team's Department to be used to support diversity activities, and a prize package of EA games. The second place team will be awarded $1500, and third place team will receive $1000. Each winning team will receive an acrylic plaque. All members entered in the competition(with an excutable submission) will receive an Award Certificate.

The Platform

You do not have to be an experienced programmer to participate in the competition. You must use the Game Maker platform. Game Maker is a freely available, PC-based game development tool. Game Maker's drag and drop gaming primitives and friendly interface allow novice designers to create interesting games almost immediately. For more advanced users, Game Maker's built-in programming language provides flexibility and customization. Development on Game Maker is supported by online documentation, tutorials, and lots of game examples.

  • Win cash prizes, gifts, and other awards!
  • Get real-world, collaborative experience in software game development!
  • Provide new software toys for girl gamers!
  • Work with your friends on a fun creative project!
