Taipei, Taiwan, 18th August 2006 – VIA Technologies, Inc., leading supplier of high definition PC silicon for the gaming market, together with VIA Chrome Ambassadors the girlz 0f destruction, today announced an exciting new contest: “Get the Girls into the Game,” with the winning girl spending a weekend at the Home of Chrome in Sweden with a friend, learning how to play PC games like a professional while visiting beautiful Stockholm. 

Since the professional PC gaming scene is largely male-dominated, the “Get the Girls into the Game” contest asks gamers of either gender to nominate a female friend as a potential winner, explaining why she would benefit from a weekend of practice with pro gamers. The winning nominee and one companion (also female) will win a weekend trip to Sweden, travel and accommodation expenses paid, and receive free gaming tuition from the girlz 0f destruction plus US$250 pocket money.
