Game Changers educate and inspire

[Connie]The MacArthur Foundation's Connie Yowell wrote a great essay at Huffington Post this week highlighting the potential of the Game Changers awards. Here's an excerpt:
News of the competition has been making its way through the gaming community, and a number of contest proposals have already come in. They contain some provocative creative plots and adventures: finding a missing genius scientist, repelling invaders of human consciousness, and the proper care and feeding of aliens. There are some intriguing new potential heroes, too, including: "Sackboy," a Geico-like lizard named "Sal," and an invisible time-traveling professor named "Momo."
