About the Globeys

Globeys Banner.png

Every year, Globaloria students participate in the Globey Awards, a game design competition that is the culmination of the year-long Globaloria program. The Globey Awards celebrate excellence in game design process and teamwork, and motivate students to dig deeper in their learning while developing real-world skills using industry-standard tools.

The Globeys are launched in the Fall semester with students working on their projects throughout the school year and submitting to the competition at the end of the Spring Semester. Students compete against others in their own geographic region. In 2014, there will be competitions in 5 states: California, Texas, New York, West Virginia and Wyoming. The winners are then selected by an expert panel of industry game designers and STEM innovators.
