Elderly e-Sports Exchange Competition

Region : Hong Kong Award : Commendation
Project Description and Social Impact
Acer Hong Kong and the Senior Citizen Home Safety Association jointly organized an e-sports competition for the elderly, aiming to help them learn more about the fun of e-sports. This innovative event broke down the barriers between technology (e-sports) and people (the elderly), opening up opportunities to participate in e-sports for a new group. Eighteen elderly competitors and Acer employees teamed up to compete in the game “Heroes of the Storm,” with the all-women team Special Mission ultimately coming out on top. This activity also attracted the attention and coverage of the local plane and media.
