Serious Games Showcase & Challenge

The Serious Games Showcase & Challenge (SGS&C) celebrates the use of games and game technology as a delivery medium for instructional material. The Challenge welcomes industry, government, and student developers of serious games that target general audience or government specific learning needs.

After a rigorous evaluation, the top entries from all received are selected as finalists and invited to showcase their games on the exhibit floor during I/ITSEC. A second round of evaluations from worldwide industry experts determines the award winners for the following categories:

  • Best General Audience Game
  • Best Government Audience Game
  • Best Student Developed Game
  • Best Serious Game Innovation
  • Best XR Game
  • Students’ Choice

Awards are presented at I/ITSEC to recognize this prestigious accomplishment PLUS an additional award is selected by all I/ITSEC attendees via ballots for the "People's Choice Award" – the serious game attendees deem the Best of Show.
