For so many of us, gaming is more than a simple pastime. It’s how we form friendships, build broad-ranging communities, and develop the drive to compete and succeed. That’s why gaming goes hand in hand with the natural communities that form in our schools. Students at all levels are looking for opportunities to take their passion for gaming and use it to help them achieve their goals.
ASUS is proud to support the development of gaming in education. Alongside our partners at Tespa, the High School Esports League (HESL), Gamers Outreach, and other organizations, we’re celebrating the 2020 back-to-school season with a full schedule of events that will help students of all ages to get the necessary gear for learning and gaming, compete for valuable prizes in an open tournament, and give back meaningfully to their communities. Head on over to our event page for all the details on how to join in.
A team effort to develop gaming in education
We’re proud to work alongside a number of organizations that share our passion for building a place for gaming in education. One is Generation Esports, which provides an innovative platform for all kinds of communities to come together and compete. As the exclusive hardware partner for the High School Esports League, we’re helping them bring a variety of hardware options to over 3,000 schools. Together, we can make sure that more learning institutions will have the hardware they need to conduct esports competitions in the coming academic year.
For the last three years, we’ve also worked with Tespa, a leader in collegiate esports. Their mission is to create a home for student gamers on every college campus across the country. We’re proud to support Tespa’s collegiate tournament programs with the latest gear to help foster collegiate esports inclusivity and so that students can compete at their best.
Our community doesn’t end with these two organizations. We’re appreciative of the work of our ROG streaming partners in spreading the word about these important programs. And we’re firmly committed to supporting Gamers Outreach in their quest to provide kids in hospitals with video games to play as they recover.
A full schedule of ways to participate
We’re celebrating Back to School 2020 with a full slate of tournaments, giveaways, and promotions. There’s all kinds of ways to participate, so don’t miss out!
The schedule is headlined by our Fortnite Back 2 School Invitational. The action has been fierce as everyday gamers compete for the glory of victory and some exciting prizes. There’s an ROG laptop awaiting the victor and a whole lot more besides. The final showdown begins on September 4th, so tune into our Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch channels to cheer on the combatants.
We have a soft spot in our hearts for kids, so we’re devoting a special ROG stream to raise funds for Gamers Outreach to create GO-Karts for children’s hospitals. These are portable video game kiosks suitable for a medical environment that make it easy for nurses and child life specialists to bring gaming worlds to children in hospitals. As the official monitor sponsor of Gamers Outreach, we’re thrilled to showcase this organization’s work to a large community. Check in on our Twitch channel to join in and show your support.
The ROG Stream Team is also excited to share their own stories in this back to school season. These streamers and content creators all have first-hand experience with how technology and gaming can create opportunities for students. Check out their channels to learn more about their stories.
