Game ON! Challenge Grants
The Outdoor Foundation, through its Outdoor Nation initiative, is partnering with the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) as well as leaders in the conservation community and entertainment gaming industry to launch Game ON! Challenge Grants. This first-of-its-kind pilot program will invest in youth-inspired projects that leverage entertainment gaming technologies and principles to get a new generation outdoors, active and engaged in conservation challenges.
Individuals and teams — beginners and experts alike — are tasked to create a new app/mobile game or promote an existing game to inspire youth to get outdoors and active. Grants of $5,000 will be given to the top four projects that are judged to have greatest likelihood of successfully increasing outdoor participation among America’s youth. In addition to the financial award, winners will have the opportunity to attend the E3 Conference.
