History of the Avnet Tech Games
The Avnet Tech Games was started in 2006 as a partnership between Avnet Inc. and the Maricopa County Community College District. The competition was created as an effort to bridge the gap between college curriculum and high tech industry standards. Subsequently, the Avnet Tech Games was opened to all Arizona college students and then to college students nationwide through the virtual game competition.
Since its inception, more than 1,800 students and 100 faculty members from 76 colleges have participated in the Avnet Tech Games. More than $225,000 has been awarded in student scholarships and faculty honorariums.
