Help mtvU design AIDS Awareness game, win $5,000

In an effort to promote discussion and raise awareness of AIDS as a problem, mtvU and the Kaiser Family Foundation have begun Change the Course of HIV Challenge, a contest "aimed at reducing the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people in the United States."

The full rules can be found on the contest main page. Entrants need not make the game themselves but are expected to have a fleshed-out idea that meets the listed criteria. The winner will receive $5,000 and the chance to help mtvU create the final game. Those with a few brilliant ideas and the determination to make a design need to complete the application form by March 16.

Last year's contest, where entrants were asked to make a game about the crisis in Sudan, spawned the oft-discussed title Darfur is Dying. You can play the game here.
