On Saturday, April 27th, we held our 13th Annual Chess Tournament with the Black Student Achievement Program(BSAP) at the Saturday Math Academy at Oakland Mill High School. 82 children from elementary, middle and high schools in Howard County participated in the event.
There was stiff competition and many tight matches. Everyone had a good time and especially enjoyed the awarding of trophies, medals and pizza…or should we say the eating of pizza at the Pizza Party held afterwards.
The Council has been partnering with the BSAP for over 13 Years in teaching children Chess and Critical Thinking, and have tutored around 150 children this year.
Special thanks to Elders Wardell Lindsay and Harvey Moran for their Leadership of the Chess Program and to Harriet Lee for the volunteers that made the year a success.
