Our chess tournament was small but mighty. On Saturday, April 14th, four chess competitors battled it out on the lawn at Schenley under the big tent. With the Cathedral of Learning and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh watching them, the kids, ranging from five years old to eight years old, played three simulating rounds with Steven Okonkwo of St. Edmund’s Academy winning the 1st place trophy.
On March 10th from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh-Main Branch (4400 Forbes Ave) QGCI will be hosting the 45th Annual Library Chess Tournament. Library tournaments are open to anyone in grades K to 8. Each tournament has a Junior Division (for Grades K-4) and a Senior Division (for Grades 5-8). Participants may play in one library only, and the cost is free. Prizes include trophies to top 2 players in each division and certificates for all participants. 1st place winners from each library are invited to the Finals!
