Wayne Hills’ Unified Gaming Grant


By Anzor Mustafa

Esports, a form of competition using video games, has been on the uprise in recent years. There are an estimated 234 million Esports euthenusatists. Many schools, including Wayne Hills have started  Esports teams and clubs to provide a place for gamers to pursue their passion and love for video games. 

Most recently, the Wayne Hills’ Esports program has received a unified gaming grant to further establish a competitive and prestigious gaming program. With the gaming world rapidly increasing there are people who are making serious careers out of video games; therefore, it makes sense for schools to start taking interest seriously.

Since the grant, there were gaming chairs set up in the school library. Due to the mysterious nature of the chairs, they have prompted a lot of questions.  “I was really confused when I first saw them and I had no idea why they were there,” says Junior Eunice Chi. She goes on to say, “I think it’s amazing that Hills is investing in students’ passions and interests. The more we explore unconventional jobs, the better occupied all students will be.” 

Hopefully more student based interests will follow suit and acquire more funding.
