Group Of Kids Win $15,000 Playing 'Minecraft'

Who said playing video games was a waste of time? A group of 10 to 14 year-old kids just won $15,000 playing Minecraft. One kid even walked away with $5,000 all to himself. What ever happened to lemonade stands and mowing lawns?

While the 5-person team won the scholarship prize, the top-scoring player in the league is from another team in California: a 10-year-old kid named Julien Wiltshire. He was also the first season's top scoring player and even took home a $5,000 scholarship prize. This time, he defeated almost 2,000 other gamers.
