On May 5th, the High School Esports League (HSEL) and Middle School Esports League (MSEL) announced they were partnering with the North America Scholastic Esports Federation (NASEF). The organizations will reportedly work together to bring gaming education to students in grades K-12.
“NASEF has always seen HSEL as the leading provider of K12 esports competitions in the nation,” said Gerald Solomon, the NASEF’s founder. “What brings us together are our core values and ethics, the fact that HSEL and NASEF put the students first. That the core focus is on helping children, especially those who are disenfranchised and unengaged succeed and thrive, is the real opportunity for esports in the world.”
The alliance of these national entities will now serve over 150,000 students in 31 countries across the globe.
