Dare to be Digital

Hello games folks,
I wanted to make sure you and your students were aware of the Dare to be Digital games competition: http://www.daretobedigital.com/
This is a video games development competition for students. Teams of five students get to go to Abertay University (Dundee, Scotland) for 9 weeks in the summer to build a game, alongside mentorship from industry. The competition provides a stipend for the students while they're there.
I'm sending this along for several reasons, not least is the fact that it sounds like a blast for the student teams that are selected to go. Last year a GT team was selected to participate: http://www.daretobedigital.com/team-information/team.php?idTeam=795
Also, both Turner and NCR--companies with strong GT connections--are supporters of this event and hope to see a strong GT showing.
Please forward on to any of your students who may be interested! The closing date for applications is April 3.
