INTERFACE Minecraft competitions 2022: Entries now open!

These competitions are now closed.

Are you and your students mad for Minecraft? Well, get your thinking caps on and your blocks ready to move because the INTERFACE Minecraft Competition 2022 is up and running.

We’ve teamed up with Microsoft and there are two parts to choose
from, one for students and the other for teachers.

Teachers: We know you’re doing some awesome things with Minecraft Education Edition. Now’s the time share your success. Simply tell us about a project you’ve been doing in class with Minecraft.

Students: Your challenge is to ‘Build a Better Future’. Come up with a creation in Minecraft that helps to protect our environment. From sustainable living to fighting climate change to tackling plastic pollution, the choice is yours!

WIN some awesome prizes, including a #StikBot Zanimation Studio and Minecraft goodies. PLUS, get the bragging rights as the best Minecrafters in the country.

Entries close Friday 8 July (end of Term 2).
