The annual Student Chess Tournament is organized by parent volunteers, many of whom coach chess clubs at their children’s schools. Contestants will compete within the rules, playing five timed matches each. Volunteer judging is performed by independent chess experts who are brought in for this event. Last year, over 200 students participated in the tournament.

Snacks and drinks will be donated and provided. Pizza will be sold during the tournament.

Interested families may contact their child’s school chess club leader for the permission slips and rules. Questions may be directed to Chris Khayat at 630-290-1504 (cell) or khayats@yahoo.com.
