University offers scholarship -- for playing video games

Filed under: Day Care & Education, Gadgets, That's Entertainment

There are plenty of scholarships available for kids who study hard, do their schoolwork, and get good grades, but what about the hard working slackers? You know, the ones who sleep during class so they can stay up all night playing video games? Don't they have feelings? Don't they have a desire to sleep through college too? A university in Virginia thinks they do.

Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia is planning to offer a scholarship based on video game skills. After competing online in video games during the first few months of the year, prospective students would face off in a championship round in the summer. The winner would get a full, four-year scholarship to the school worth eighty thousand dollars. That's a lot of college credit.

I don't know about you, but I think I'll get my kids started working on their video game skills right away.
