  Polk Scholastic Chess  Tournament Update (season 2020-2021)

Polk Scholastic Chess 2020-21 Season has been cancelled


We hope you and yours are doing well in these crazy times! The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us all in a lot of areas and have forced us to change the way we live and operate. To ensure safety of our kids, parents and coaches, the Polk Scholastic Chess Board has decided to cancel the tournaments for this season. On our regular tournament days, we have close to a thousand people gathered at the venue, and the risk of infections would be magnified especially in the upcoming flu season. We know this is disappointing news for all chess lovers, but the risks are far greater than the rewards.

However, the board has decided to allow the Senior Scholarship Applications for this year, as this is conducted online. We will be flexible with our rule (# 6 below) for applicants to have played the mandatory games in the current season. So we invite all qualifying Senior students to take advantage of this opportunity.

APPLICATION SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
1. All applicants must be graduating seniors of the current school year.
2. Intend on entering college for the fall semester after graduating.
3. Have a good record of sportsmanlike behavior.
4. Have a good record of school and community involvement.
5. Have been part of Polk Scholastic Chess for five or more years.
6. (Excused for this season): Should qualify for Championship and attend Championship tournament and be present at the final Award Ceremony in March. Otherwise Scholarship will be forfeited and will given to the next student.

Complete and submit this application online on https://polkscholasticchess.com by January 10, 2021.

Thank you for your continued support and participation, and in the spirit of "glass half full", we look forward to a wonderful tournament season next year!


Thank you for your continued support and participation.
