You do not have to reside in Gwinnett County, GA to participate; however, a representative of your team must be at the showcase on 5/4 to collect the award. Please share the information with your community. Last year, we got 19 entires and they were all local developers, we would like to get entries from around the country. Also, if you have any interest in helping with the next Game Jam, please let me know. We definitely need volunteers.
