The fourth MT. ALEXANDER SCHOOLS CHESS CHALLENGE is a Victorian Schools Tournament offering $15,000 in chess grants

The concept builds upon the Castlemaine Community’s development of chess excellence in education on a local and global level over the past 10 years. The Challenge is funded by various private benefactors from Castlemaine, and is sponsored by DET.

The tournament will run over 2 days, with one day for secondary schools and another day for primary schools.

The tournament is inclusive and welcomes tri-participation from Government schools, Catholic schools, and Independent schools. The fourth annual tournament is on Tuesday 18th September and Wednesday 19th September, 2018. Chess Grants received through participation in this event are intended to be used solely for developing chess programs within schools and community.
