Since 2008 Jennifer Ann's Group has hosted an annual game design challenge asking game developers to create video games about teen dating violence ... without using any violence in the games themselves!
The video games will be judged on the following criteria:
Educational Value (20%) incorporating accurate info about Teen Dating Violence
Entertainment Value (20%) providing a video game that people will want to play
Increasing Awareness (20%) offering an eye-opening experience to help people recognize the prevalence and ubiquity of abusive relationships
Fostering Advocacy (20%) empowering friends, family, and bystanders to get involved when they witness relationship abuse
Game Elements (20%) incorporating elements of game play like goals, rules, interaction, and competition
