INTERFACE Junior Awards – Minecraft

2015_jr_awards_RGBminecraft_logo

We’re again running a student Minecraft competition but with a bit of a twist.

Welcome to the entry form for the ‘Best Minecraft Creation’ category in this year’s Junior INTERFACE Awards!

If your students are mad for Minecraft, this is the competition for them and you! In the two years we’ve been running this competition, we’ve received some fantastic entries … and we’re hoping for even better things this time!

Check out our ‘Minecraft Maestros’ – the winners in 2014.

There are FOUR categories to choose from in this year’s competition:

Your Dream Classroom (Years 1-8)

What would your perfect classroom look like? How would it be constructed and laid out? What would be in it? Design and create the classroom (or classrooms) of your dreams.

Your Dream School (Years 9+)

What would your perfect school look like? How would it be constructed and laid out? What would be in it? Design and create the school of your dreams.

Freestyle (all Years)

This is an open category that any student can enter. The structure can be of any design, from an imaginary building or a famous landmark, to a machine or transport vehicle (boat, plane, etc.), or just about anything, as long as it’s something the entrants has designed and built.

New Zealand Buildings (all Years)

This is also an open category that any student can enter. The structure must be either a well-known building in New Zealand, or an environment that’s designed to be a representation of a New Zealand scene – perhaps a farm, settlement, school, or marae.

 

Parrot-Mini-Drone-red

WIN a Parrot Mini Drone Rolling Spider Red

The four category winners will each receive a certificate and a Mini Drone for their classroom.

 

How to enter

Choose the category and talk through the requirements with the student(s). Build the entry in Minecraft and record either as screenshots or a video. We don’t mind either but it needs to give us a good tour or view of the design. Complete the entry form below.

Entries will be judged equally on:

  • Accuracy and neatness of construction
  • Complexity of design
  • Appropriate use of materials

All entries require both teacher and student details – incomplete entries will not be accepted. Please submit one form per entry. Entries can be from individuals or groups/classes. For individuals or small groups, enter all names. For large groups or classes, enter a group or class name.

Entries are now closed Thanks to all who entered.
