The American Democracy Game Earns Game of the Year Award from Creative Child Magazine


Creative Child Magazine awarded d'Vinci Interactive and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) top honors for The American Democracy Game. The judges selected The American Democracy Game as the "Game of the Year" for 2021.

The American Democracy Game puts late elementary and middle school students in the shoes of a lawmaker where their decisions impact game play and the outcome of each level. Students earn stars at the completion of each level based on integrity, respect, compromise, honesty, and commitment.

The American Democracy Game teaches the concepts of representative democracy – that every individual has equal rights and value, that compromise is necessary at times, and that the minority still has rights under majority rule.

The American Democracy Game is created by The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and developed by d'Vinci Interactive. The game was originally created in 2010 and recently modernized into a fresh learning experience.

The Creative Child Magazine Awards Program honors products, DVDs, CDs, books, games, and toys that nurture creativity and education in children. Unique to this awards program, submissions are reviewed by mothers, educators, and early education professionals and evaluated based on their individual opinions.

Judges who reviewed The American Democracy Game shared that "every student should play this interactive learning game" and "it's a great way for students to learn about civics."

Students and educators can learn more about The American Democracy Game and can play this free game by visiting the NCSL website.
