We will be holding an Alice competition with an awards program on Thurs Feb 18th, 2010 and the submission deadline for entries is midnight Fri Feb 12th, 2010. There will be a website to submit the entries to. The event will start at 5:30pm and end at 9:00pm. We will have a dinner at 6:00pm. Wayne Wooten, a graduate of Georgia Tech who works at Pixar, will give a talk at 7:00pm. The awards will take place after the talk. All students who actually submitted an entry are welcome to attend the awards program.

There will be one division for elementary school students (4th - 5th graders), one for middle school students, and one for high school students. Awards will be given for both individual and group projects (up to 3 people per group). Projects will be judged based on creativity, originality, technical merit, and how well they follow good programming practices (comments, breaking tasks or scences into methods, putting the methods on the right objects, etc). There will be two categories of awards: movies and interactive games. The movies must be at least 15 seconds long and must be less than 2 minutes long. All movies must display some text to show that the movie is over (like "The End"). Interactive games can be submitted as well but a video (in Quicktime or AVI format) showing someone playing the game (just the screen capture we don't actually want to see the person playing the game) must be submitted with the game. The video of the person playing the game must be at least 15 seconds and less than 2 minutes long. You can use CamStudio or Camtasia to create the video. All interactive games must also include instructions (as a word doc or rtf) for playing the game.

We will give Alice Giveaways 2010 to at least 3 entries in each category (3 for elementary school movies, 3 for middle school movies, 3 for high school movies, 3 for elementary school games, 3 for middle school games, 3 for high school games). In addition we will also give out the following special awards: Most Creative, Best Comedy, Best Drama, Best Educational Game, Best Educational Movie, Best Adventure Game, Best use of Music, Best use of Sound, Best use of Dialogue, and Best Original Idea.
