ALPINE, Utah - Dec. 14, 2019 - PRLog -- Our teams will compete among Utah high schools for top bragging rights for "League of Legends" by Riot Games.

The event will start at 12:00 PM, at the University of Utah, Entertainment Arts and Engineering building 32 S 1400 EAST BLDG. 72SLC UT 84112.  Active play will be at 1 pm to 6 pm.

iTEAM USA was created to encourage student career and technical development in the innovative technology, entertainment arts, and multimedia fields. By partnering industry and employers with educators, we
collaborate on skills-based engagements to better align the needs of industry
and students with cutting edge curriculum.

ITEAM USA
is a structured gateway to get high school students interested in CS and
IT. We want to increase exposure, working with states as they implement K-12 CS
standards nationally. Many students don't realize the numerous opportunities in
every industry that will become available to them through participation in CS
and IT courses.  Esports may be the thing that gets them in the door, but
the competitions and certifications that promote careers and job opportunities
in every content area will benefit them for a lifetime.

Equity and diversity have traditionally been barriers for students
to have the opportunity to compete in competitions like ours. iTEAM USA is
going to tear down these barriers. Our goal is to let any school or
student join that has interest by removing any financial and connectivity
barriers.

Our mission is focused on the whole-person development of each student by 1)
Promoting physical, mental, and social well-being. 2) Developing character,
leadership, and civic initiative. 3) Establishing the technical skills, work
ethic, and dependability that are critical to employability.

iTEAM USA is teaming up with the UHSAA, Cyberpatriot, Rex Robotics, Silicon Slopes, U of U, SLCC, UVU, and many others. Our state conference is scheduled April 2nd and 3rd at Utah Valley University.
