The Library of Congress is sponsoring a challenge to help improve public knowledge of civics – that is, the rights and responsibilities of citizens – by asking video game developers to create fun, lightweight video games related to civics that incorporate Library of Congress resources
The Library will award a cash prize of $20,000 for the winning entry, $10,000 for the second-place entry, and $5,000 for the third-place entry. The winning games will be hosted on the Library of Congress site for use by the American public and the winners will be honored in a public ceremony. The deadline for entries is 11/27/23. You can find details on the rules and information on how to enter here.
We hope you will consider participating in this challenge. Thank you to the Friends of the Library of Congress for making this challenge possible. Learn more about Friends of the Library of Congress and join to vote in the next Friends’ Choice Award.
