One of my brightest students, 8-year-old Rowan James, finished in 3rd place at the 2013 Canadian Youth Chess Championship for the age 8 and under section.

That's right! He finished 3rd at Nationals!

Rowan has qualified to play in the World Youth Chess Championship in Dubai. However, the cost of plane tickets to Dubai in addition to lodging, food, etc. make this trip expensive. Rowan's parents are seeking donations to help fund Rowan's trip to Dubai.

Rowan needs your help! Please consider making a small donation. To donate, please follow this link:

Rowan is one of Canada's most promising chess prodigies. While being significantly underrated at 1386 CFC, he is still the 4th highest rated 8-year-old chess player in all of Canada.

 

Help him out! :)
