My friend who is a homeschooling parent suggested I share this contest as she loved the idea and is having her kids participate. I work for a game and toy company, University Games, in San Francisco and we are organizing on and promoting a young game makers' contest, The National Young Game Inventors’ Contest™ (NYGIC).

NYGIC is an annual contest that encourages imagination, critical thinking, deductive reasoning and creativity through board game invention. We invite kids ages 5-12 to use their imaginations to invent, design and submit a complete board game. In a world filled with high tech toys, the contest is an effort to reach out to children and families to bring back social interaction through game play.

The inventors have a chance to win prizes including a trip to San Francisco, Toy R Us gift cards, and more. In addition, the winning game may be produced by University Games for our 2014 lineup.
