Join the Office on Women's Health in helping women and girls reach and maintain a healthy weight. Enter our Shape of Health: An Obesity Prevention Game challenge by creating a video game focused on obesity prevention or weight control for women or girls.
In the United States, 2 out of every 3 women have overweight or obesity. Among girls 2 to 19 years old, the 2015–2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that about 1 in 3 girls has either overweight or obesity. Now is the time to give women and girls the tools they need to lead healthier lives, as extra weight can lead to conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and many cancers.
Through our Shape of Health: An Obesity Prevention Game challenge, you have the opportunity to create an engaging web- or mobile-based game that helps women or girls build healthier exercise and eating habits to prevent obesity. If you have an idea, we want to hear from you! All participants must submit their entries by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 7. Visit challenge.gov to learn more about prizes, the stages of the competition, and submission details and requirements. We can't wait to see your creative ideas!
