The Washington State Elementary and Middle School Championships will be held May 1. There is also a high school section, but it is not the annual state championship. Register at https://chessreg.com/state2021

 

The event will be online. This year’s organizer is the Inland Chess Academy in Spokane. The lead organizer is James Stripes, who goes by Ziryab on this website.

Your name sounds familiar. Weren't you a guest commentator in last year's Washington Elementary State Championship?

I was on the broadcast for twenty minutes for the purpose of talking about this year. At the time, there was still hope that we would be having the event in the Spokane Convention Center. Even last September, our planning considered both possibilities, although I thought online seemed more likely at that point.

Randy Kaech was last year’s host for the broadcast and did a great job.
