Yes, it’s back! The Young Games Inventor of the Year competition for 2015 has been unleashed which means creativity has yet another champion! It was around this time last year that I did a post about the competition.
The Young Games Inventor of the Year competition is an amazing event in the UK. Granted, you have to be a UK resident under the age of 16 (i.e. those super creative children that seem to know more about life than we do!) to enter the competition with permission from the parents/guardians but that doesn’t mean I can’t talk about it!
I mean, what’s not to love about creativity? It uses a different part of your brain than our more logical side that tells us 2 +2 is 4. It gets us to think of novel answers to novel problems. Without creativity, I bet you most things we take for granted wouldn’t even exist!
That’s perhaps why I’m so fond of the Young Games Inventor of the Year competition. It means, some child in the UK is going to find out about the competition and they’re going to come up with a really cool game. Whether or not a particular game gets picked isn’t a critical point for me. For me, the learning that took place during the whole process, that’s what counts. All those brain cells firing away, making new neural connections, I mean, that’s magic!
There you have it. If you live in the UK and you know a child who’s less than 16 years of age, let them know about the Young Games Inventor of the Year competition. Even if they decide not to sign up for the competition, maybe they’ll be inspired enough to come up with their own game at home. Be sure to click on the link below to learn more details (and always read the fine print!) but you’ll have to hurry because the competition ends November 1, 2015.
Time to get that creative brain moving!
