Games for Health design competition opens
Envision a game that makes a difference, and your idea could net you a clean conscience (and some cash). The Games for Health competition is looking for game designs "aimed at improving aspects of health and health care." The best student / organization storyboards will win $5,000 apiece, and the best prototype / health game will win $20,000 (presumably the money will go toward more development).

The contest kicks off today and ends April 1, 2007. Winners will be announced in May. No programming skills are necessary; if you have an idea, some determination, and a few hours, you could make a difference (or at least a few thousand dollars). More information can be found at the competition website and you can find a list of requirements on the entry forms.
