Looking for a fun new backyard game for your family to play? If you're feeling creative, you and your kids could create your own game, and it might even earn your kids a $10,000 scholarship from Clif Kids as part of the company's fourth annual backyard game competition.

Now through July 3, Clif Kids is asking kids ages 6 to 12 to submit their original backyard game ideas for the chance to win the grand prize $10,000 scholarship, bike, helmet, and block party for family and friends. The folks at Clif Kids will choose three finalists in early July, and then the public will get a chance to vote for the winner from July 21-28. Two finalists will receive a $1,000 scholarship, bike and helmet. That's pretty good for playtime fun!

And if you and your kids aren't feeling that creative, you can always check out the lineup of games already on the Clif Kids site. Choose from games like Zombie Hunt, Card Sharks or how about Tortoise and Hare Ball? Need even more ideas? Check out MNN's awesome list of 50 backyard games for summer.

Happy playing!
