Each year, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) Foundation brings together more than 600 members of the video game industry to raise funds for scholarships and other critical education and digital learning programs at Nite to Unite (NTU).

It is a night to celebrate the many ways video games drive positive change in our society and transform kids’ lives. A night to honor leaders and visionaries who are making a profound difference through video games.  And, a night to raise funds in support of scholarships for the next generation of game makers and charitable organizations leveraging the power of interactive software.

 

The ESA Foundation is excited to announce Laila Shabir as the 2018 Visionary Award recipient

The LearnDistrict founder and CEO is being honored for her pioneering vision to empower young women in STEAM through her company’s female-focused Girls Make Games summer camps, workshops, and games. Learn more about Laila’s work here and join us this March to celebrate her and the 20th anniversary of Nite to Unite.
