Congratulations to the winners of our First Annual Games Without Borders Youth Challenge!
In lieu of the World Citizen Essay Contest, Global Classroom encouraged students to apply their knowledge of and passion for gaming while learning about world issues. Since fun, educational games about global topics are hard to find, GC gave Puget Sound students a new challenge: create a game that young people would love to play and that would raise awareness about a global topic or issue.
