MTVu (MTV has a university?) announces that they are holding a contest to come up with an online video game to teach young people about HIV/AIDS. Called the "Change the Course of HIV Challenge," the competition is for the best idea for an online viral video game. So you don’t have to be a game developer, you just have to be inspired with the concept for a game that would educate kids about HIV/AIDS and what they can do to prevent it. Oh yeah, the winner gets $5,000, and probably all the condoms they can carry. Deadline to apply is March 16, 2007.
