Global Competition Seeks Innovations in Health Digital Games
Ashoka's Changemakers.net - in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation - launched an online competition designed to find innovative ways that video games can be used to help people manage their health and improve how their care is provided. The competition, called "Why Games Matter: A Prescription for Improving Health and Health Care," challenges game developers, researchers, health organizations and others to demonstrate how games can help improve health and health care.
This latest contest will feature a panel of judges who will select approximately 12 finalists, after which online votes will determine the top 3 winners, each of whom will receive $5,000. As an added bonus, all finalists will also be given the opportunity to attend the "Why Games Matter" Change Summit at the upcoming 2008 Games for Health conference.
