We're thrilled to announce that we've been recognized as a finalist for the 2023 Tempest Awards under the category of 'Best Charity or Social Good Initiative'. This honor reflects our unwavering commitment to creating a positive impact in the world through gaming. Celebrate this journey with us as we continue to push boundaries and drive meaningful change!
“MTA is proud to lead Alaska’s growth in the esports world and look forward to the connections between education and technology that MTA Gaming will continue to develop.”
Over the past several years, MTA’s annual gaming tournament has served as a signature event helping to promote the MTA Foundation, underscoring our long-running commitment to giving back to the communities we serve. The MTA Foundation serves to pioneer a more robust and connected community throughout Alaska with its hearty scholarship program and monumental major grants.
You might think the Last Frontier gets left in the cold when it comes to esports, but you’d be wrong. Through constant collaboration and community building between MTA Gaming, local businesses, Alaska schools, and the gaming community, we are pioneering esports throughout Alaska.
Through impactful financial support, consultation, and a robust internship program, MTA partners with MSBSD to further engage their already growing competitive esports programs.
In 2022 our gaming tournament raised $28K for the MTA Foundation! We are proud to continue pioneering esports in Alaska with the state's first and only esports league -- now with the largest prize pool in the state. Gamers from Ketchikan to Nome competed for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes and are ready to do it all again this year.
