The creators of our favorite oncology based video game are sponsoring a contest for teenagers to develop an appealing and entertaining video game that can be used to battle obesity. The contest, which is now closed to new entries, is called Ruckus Nation and the winners will be announced in “early 2008.”
HopeLab has a booth at the CES Sandbox Summit to showcase its online competition to drum up ideas for a video game that will get kids moving, keep them active, and turn back the tide on childhood obesity. The competition is called Ruckus Nation.
Ellen LaPointe, HopeLab’s vice president of Strategic Initiatives, says the company challenged teens to come up with ideas for games that will appeal to middle-school-age kids. Think a new Dance Dance Revolution that will get limbs moving and hearts pumping. There were 429 submissions, and judges are now sifting through the proposals to find their way to the winner.
The winner with the best idea will win $75,000 in March.
