One look at this blog and you’ll know I’m kind of into Minecraft. But who isn’t these days? Seriously, mention it to a group of under 15s and guaranteed you’ll start a conversation about the best mods, servers or builds.

So, I was totally excited to be asked to be a judge for the Skerries Soundwaves Minecraft Competition. It’s an amazing event run by Sabine McKenna, an educator and Minecrafter living in Skerries, Ireland. She’s also the creator of Primary Minecraft, a site dedicated to helping primary school teachers use Minecraft and other video games in their classrooms.

There’s so many things to love about this project: it’s part of a larger community festival (yah communities!), it’s happening in Ireland (yah Ireland!), it takes place in Minecraft, it’s original and, best of all, the winning prize is a box of chocolate. So, it’s not about the prize, but about the fun of taking part. I think you could say win three times and that’d sum it all up.

The theme for the competition is “Skerries in 3012“, so I’m looking forward to seeing what the future Ireland will look like! The judging takes place on Saturday and I can’t wait to go in game and check out the builds.

In the meantime, you can learn more about the project at their website, or check out their facebook page for screenshots of the builds.

Watch this space on news of the winners and thanks again Skerriescrafters for inviting me to take part!
