The White House announced the National STEM Video Game Challenge yesterday. This is a mobile game development contest, with a $50,000 grand prize and $25,000 prize for the best undergraduate or graduate student developed game, and a $25,000 prize for the best game reaching an underserved population.

Games should emphasize some specific (but fairly broad) Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills. Submissions are due January 5th.
