Breaking In project resources
As part of the Breaking In project, the IGDA sent a letter and poster to over 10,000 high-schools in North America. The goal of the letter was to inform guidance counselors on the opportunity for challenging and rewarding careers in the game industry. The poster is meant to direct students to this web site for further information. The letter and poster are made available freely here if you would like use them in any way.
