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.
