This tournament is open to every K-12 TISD student.  Every student will play every round.

There will also be a School Sweepstakes trophy awarded to the top scoring school.

Entry fee is $10.00. We accept cash or check payable to your student’s school.  Please write district chess tournament in the memo line.  This helps to pay for use of the facility, trophies, medals and ribbons.
