This Ohio Company is Bringing Esports to High School Classrooms
11 Jul 2023
Video games are no longer just a casual hobby, they are now a nearly $100 billion industry. The rise of esports — competitive gaming packaged in an environment closer to traditional sports — has been swift. Research indicates that more than 500 million people watch esports worldwide in an industry that saw more than $4 billion in investment last year. Esports now represent a career path, an aspiration, and even a college scholarship opportunity. To connect Ohio kids with that opportunity, a group of educators and gaming enthusiasts came together to form Esports Ohio, a free-to-join educational, nonprofit esports organization and league created by teachers for students.
