MANDAN, ND — Fourteen high schools in North Dakota, including a few in our area, plan to form competitive video gaming teams.
Mandan Superintendent Mike Bitz says his school will spend around $20,000 this year to buy computers and other equipment to construct an esports lab for students.
He says it will help an “underrepresented population” of students who might not otherwise partake in school athletics or activities.
