Esports, or competitive video gaming, has been steadily growing in Alaska schools for the past few years. The new activity is helping foster community within schools.
Esports is growing in many high schools across Alaska. The sport was sanctioned by the the Alaska School Activities Association in April, and more and more students are getting involved.
The Alaska School Activities Association may accept esports as a sanctioned sport soon. Over 30 schools in the state already have esports teams starting up this fall.
