The SGS&C Challenge

SGS&C contestants are invited to submit their serious game when the submission period opens. This and other important dates are prominently displayed on the SGS&C home page. Contestants must follow the process outlined below and comply with the Rules.  Winners from SimTecT Serious Games Showcase are given automatic entry as a finalist under the international collaboration initiative.

After the submission period closes, the SGS&C Planning Committee conducts a Downselect process where the finalists are selected and notified that they should start making their plans to attend I/ITSEC. The Challenge then enters the evaluation period where an esteemed panel of evaluators determines the winners of the awards in each category.  Middle and high school students from various school systems will play and evaluate select games to collectively select the winner of the Students’ Choice Award.


The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) is November 29 through December 3, 2021, in Orlando, Florida, at the Orange County Convention Center.
