Letters from the Chess Community

Longfellow Elementary Benefits from U.S. Chess Trust Donated Chess Sets.


“The Longfellow Elementary Chess Club is made up of 3rd and 4th graders. Last fall the 4th grade finished in 4th place at the State of Ohio Grade Level Championships.

“In the Spring Ohio Elementary Championships, we placed 3rd in the K-3 championships, 3rd in the K-3 novice division, and 4th in the K-6 reserve division.”

Of U.S. Chess Trust Chess Set Donations To The School…

“We really appreciate the donation and we put it to good use. Unfortunately, our school was closed do to cut backs but the memories of competitive chess live on. I had the privilege of teaching most of these players in third grade and the research holds up. Most, if not all my third grade chess players scored at the accelerated and advanced levels on the state 3rd grade math test. Also, most of these players had less than 1 year of chess experience. Pretty good for an urban district with a significant poverty rate.” Bob Brdar

We commend Bob for all the support and encouragement he provided for these outstanding young chess players!
