Getting Chess Scholarships
Scholastic chess is great for kids, and among many reasons are the scholarships available to chess players who do well and rank high in scholastic chess. There are lots of chess tournaments for kids available all over the country, and parents of young kids should definately take advantage of them if their kids are at all interested in chess. Or you can be like me and drag them to the tourneys whether they are interested or not. The thing is I started them so long they never questioned that they had to go.
