The WVSCA philosophy is aimed at
believe in themselves and in their ability to succeed in school. We use
the game of chess as an educational tool to motivate children to learn,
to teach children to think and to show children they can succeed in
intellectual pursuits. In learning chess, children develop
self-confidence, a willingness to work hard and the higher-order
thinking skills that lead to academic achievement.
The online registration form for the 49th WV State Sholastic Chess Championships is now available.
