Winners for Mouse Microproject: Scratch #CSforGood Impact Game
Over the last two months, our competition tasked you all to turn a Scratch Game into a game that brings attention to an issue you are passionate about. This particular challenge celebrated both the yearly Hour of Code and the growing Impact Games movement which features games designed around real-world issues. We had just as much fun playing your many submissions as we did learning from them! We were pleasantly surprised to see the many creative ways you were able to change a starter Scratch Game into a creation that was uniquely your own! Thanks for all the awesome submissions!
Our Grand Prize winner, taking home a $25 Amazon Gift Card, is CyberBully 1980 by Nullptr from Rogers Middle School in Long Beach, California! Nullptr’s game focuses on cyberbullying, and addresses the issue through a series of mini-games. Each game addresses a way to help stop cyber-bullying in a fast and fun way. Congratulations Nullptr!
