Somewhere on a shelf in the vast Shelter Insurance headquarters sits a humongous Goblet of Power and Triumph trophy inspiring their tech workers and beyond. It was brought “home” by the above-pictured happy team of Karson White and Hunter Sadler, who beat the KidsFirst Optimist team in the final rounds.

Teams from Newsy, Columbia Insurance Group, Tin Can Technologies, Landmark Bank, Commerce Bank, Easterseals Midwest, Grandma Daple’s Team, and Central Bank of Boone County were other competitors.

The question is — will Karson and Hunter be so happy in 2017? Will Shelter Insurance as a whole continue to prosper from the good trophy vibes which has been influencing their company undoubtedly on an unprecedented prosperous scale? Who will win our 2017 Sponsor Face-Off tournament?

We shall see! Please join us now as a sponsor for our 3rd Annual EpicEnCircle Video Game Tournament on November 4th, 2017. We had over 100 gamers last year and are expanding our game play to both SuperSmash Bros Melee and Smash 4. The tourney is going to be bigger and better than ever!

We’re still looking for a lead sponsor too. If you would like the tournament named after your company or person, let me know. Otherwise, we have different levels of sponsorship and perks which you can find here.

Truly your support helps keep our mission alive at EnCircle Technologies where we train young adults (high schoolers now too) with autism or other developmental issues in technical skills.
