Since the creation of Twitch in June 2011 (and for a select few back with the launch of JTV in August 2009), thousands of broadcasters have fired up their webcams, logged into their favorite game, and started broadcasting. In that time, we’ve seen the success of thousands of broadcasters, witnessed many record-breaking events, been a part of some of the most epic game launches in history, and have become the go-to place for charities to raise millions of dollars through online gaming.
While we’ve always taken pride in our broadcasters, supporting them throughout their journeys, we’ve decided to make a more public appreciation in those who have spent hundreds (and to some, thousands) of hours dedicating time and energy to putting the best live gaming content on Twitch. After months of planning, we’re really excited to announce the new Twitch Top Broadcaster Program.

Twitch and NewEgg are each contributing $10,000 toward the scholarship. (I guess you could say the ‘e’ in ‘esports’ means ‘education’.)
