It was a very exciting evening when four teams of local middle school students competed for the top three places and cash prizes in Prairie STEM’s Middle School Fortnite Esports Tournament on Thursday, August 6th, 2020. These students used and developed many soft skills during this event, such as leadership, teamwork, communication, strategizing, work ethic, self-confidence, and inclusion, as well as technology skills such as how to log onto the site and what to do after that. This was Prairie STEM’s 2nd middle school Esports tournament. We are looking forward to more and more students participating in our tournaments every month, rotating a different game each time. Look for September’s tournament on September 3rd, which will be Smash Ultimate. All tournaments are streamed live and anyone can watch them on Prairie STEM’s webpage, www.prairiestem.org. Prairie STEM Esports tournaments are free to participators and spectators.
We want to congratulate the winning teams from this tournament: 1st Place – Mad Dogs, 2nd Place – Arlo Eagles, and 3rd Place – Iron Sight
Congratulations to all who played! You did an amazing job! See pictures from the tournament below.
