Mason Korea Computer Game Design Professors Speak at Dwight School Seoul

High School Students Invited to Join Mason Korea's Progress@Play Competition

imageMason Korea Computer Game Design Professors John Doran and John David McGrew recently gave a talk to a group of high school students at Dwight School Seoul, an international school in Seoul. Anne Choe, Director of PR and Communications at Dwight and a member of Mason Korea’s Advisory Board, invited the professors to introduce Mason Korea’s Progress@Play digital art competition to encourage student participation.

Students enjoyed the unique opportunity to meet university professors and learn more about computer game design and social impact. “It was great to see so many students interested in participating in the Progress@Play competition,” said Professor John Doran, adding, “I look forward to seeing what creative ideas they come up with!”

“We hope that the competition will not only help the rising generation of students get excited about creating digital art, but also provide them an opportunity to creatively explore some of the challenges we are facing with education, health, and the environment," said Professor John David McGrew.


“I am excited at the opportunity for our Dwight School Seoul students to participate in this competition that incorporates raising awareness of our most pressing social issues through the agency of the UNSDGs, which represent life-changing goals that aim to improve the planet and the lives of its citizens,” said Anne Choe, adding, “It's a great medium for our young people to express their artistic talent with creative solutions.”

“I think Progress@Play offers a special opportunity for students at international schools like Dwight to display their artistic skills and also gain a meaningful out-of-school experience,” said Christina Cha, Director of Strategic Partnerships, who is leading the competition.

All college and high school students in the Seoul metropolitan can join the competition by submitting their digital artwork by November 14. For more information, please visit
