The Queen City Chess Tournament is one of the most anticipated events in the chess community throughout the Midwest. On March 16–17, students ranging in ages from kindergarten to high school gathered at Paul Brown Stadium to play up to five rounds of chess. The tournament is the ideal place for students to develop new chess strategies, meet new people, and most importantly, learn imperative life skills. Last year the Queen City Classic was nominated by Duke Energy Children’s Museum for the museum’s Difference Maker Award for exemplifying these qualities to the area youth.
The tournament proved to be a thrilling battle of the minds with a sold out crowd of over 700 scholastic chess players. But more importantly, the Queen City Classic teaches kids valuable lessons such as following rules, good sportsmanship, practicing patience, and critical thinking—all while having a fun and fantastic time!
For 2013 event information including sponsorship opportunities and how to register for the tournament, please call 1-866-PSCHESS (1-866-772-4377) or visit www.queencityclassic.org.
