The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association are deciding whether, “The popular games may soon be played at the hands of local students on the campuses of Nevada high schools,” reports News3LV.com.
“By sanctioning Esports, students would be able to play in competitions going head-to-head, or controller-to-controller, vying for standings and trophies.”
One argument for move? Better grades for students.
Said Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association Executive Director Bart Thompson: “Students who participate in sports and activities, graduate at a higher rate. They have higher great point averages, fewer disciplinary problems, fewer attendance problems, all of those types of things.”
