In May 2017, two awards were given in honor of Max. The first was the $500 Max Mallory Best in Show Award, the top award at the Media Arts and Game Design Expo at the University of Whitewater-Wisconsin. The Expo is an opportunity for students to show video games they have developed as part of their studies. Max won an award at the Expo in 2015.
The second award, the Max Mallory Scholarship, is a $1,000 scholarship given to an incoming junior in the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Media Arts and Game Design program. This assists a student, chosen by the university, to complete their major. This was the first scholarship for the Media Arts and Game Design program at the university.
Both the award and scholarship will be given annually.
