Get Ready For Innovation Simi Valley...

We are now hosting a SVEF Minecraft Challenge that allows us to get creative together, to CELEBRATE our Simi Valley community and to say THANK YOU! We are grateful that we have all pulled together during these difficult times.  Now lets see what our students, teachers, parents and businesses can do to build a futuristic Simi Valley.  

Steps to Submit

1. Register!

 Register teams of one (1) up to four (4) community members ages 7-99, read the rules and regulations. Students under 18 will need a parent or guardian to complete their registration.  [ Registration Closed]

2. Build!

Build a Minecraft world with any “Minecraft Edition” of your choosing. Your world must be built without pre-paid MODS.  However, you can use command blocks and we encourage you to try out the Education Edition / Mode, if you are a Simi Valley student, to try the latest features on that version.  Any video submission must be the work of the Team Members, including but not limited to, the actual filming, editing, graphic design, etc. of the Game Recording.

 3. Submit!

Submit your recording (2-3 minute maximum) to: by Sunday, January 24th 2021 @ 11:59pm

  • Game Recording of the project (maximum length 3 minutes) with no Personally Identifiable Information as part of the video, sharing only the team name and school (if you are part of a school).
  • Brief description of the team’s project including how their space celebrates Simi Valley and what they are displaying in their world that is futuristic.
  • What the team learned as part of their involvement. Did they learn anything new about coding within Minecraft?
