Rising Stars: Collegiate Edition is searching for the next great streamer

Rising Stars: Collegiate Edition 2022

The Semi-Finals are tonight on Twitch

Another gaming talent search is underway for promising young content creators across the United States and Canada as Enthusiast Gaming and e.l.f. Cosmetics have teamed up for a 2022 Collegiate Edition of the Rising Stars streaming competition.

After making it through the audition round, up-and-coming content creators have been competing for a top spot, and the end is in sight. This time around, there’s a $100,000 USD prize up for grabs — but first, the participants will need to get through the Semi-Finals, which will be streamed today on Twitch starting at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.

The six semi-finalists — napoellis, BailyGoat, Jeffrey, pipluptiny, KeeLoker, and JeyG — will be duking it out later today in front of the Rising Stars judges, host, and everyone in the Twitch audience. You can tune in and show your support for your favorite collegiate creator on the lgloyal and elfyou Twitch channels. No pressure, y’all — you got this!

The winner will land a $100K Content Creator Sponsorship with Luminosity Gaming, and the two runners-up are taking home a $2,500 USD college grant, courtesy of e.l.f.

“We are thrilled to welcome e.l.f. Cosmetics as our first Rising Stars co-creators, building on the success of properties including Gamers’ Greatest Talent and Luminosity Academy,” said Enthusiast Gaming CEO Adrian Montgomery. “We are looking for a diverse mix of up-and-coming creators from colleges across the U.S. and Canada, who will have a chance to learn from top gamers and mentors as they compete for a spot on our Luminosity Gaming roster.”

Following today’s festivities, the live finale for Rising Stars: Collegiate Edition 2022 will take place next Saturday, March 19.
