School-gen teamed up with Interface magazine to challenge students to build an energy efficient, low environmental impact house using Minecraft. With over 200 amazing entries it was a huge task for the judges to choose the winners.

The judges focused on how well the students met the brief in terms of energy efficiency and low environmental impact, as well as innovative and imaginative designs.

The winners got a Sphero SPRK+ Edition Robotic kit for their class and a $50 Prezzy card. Runners up received $50 Prezzy cards.
