AGBU CONTINUES SUPPORTING THE REPUBLICAN INTERSCHOOL CHESS TOURNAMENT

 

 

For the third consecutive year the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) renders assistance to the Republican Interschool Chess Championship, which is organized by the RA Education and Science Ministry, RA Chess Federation and the AGBU. The main goal of the tournament is to support the development of chess in Armenia, discover new young talents and help maintain Armenia’s leading position in the world chess championships. About 15,000 schoolchildren from all the regions of Armenia and Artsakh struggle for the finals. Currently, the 4th republican interschool chess tournament is underway. On November 24, at 11:00a.m., the second round of the tournament kicked off at the Armenian Chess Academy in Shengavit district of Yerevan. On that occasion Vice President of the RA Chess Federation Smbat Lputyan, Shengavit governor Sarkis Hovanissian, and Director of the AGBU Armenian Representation Ashot Ghazaryan visited the Armenian Chess Academy, which had hosted on that day the winners of the first round of the tournament from all the Shengavit schools. “This is a very important event. We are trying to keep the children away from the streets, instill new interests in them and help develop new skills. These children will continue our traditions and the path laid by such giants of chess as Tigran Petrossian, Levon Aronian, Smbat Lputian, and Rafayel Vahanian”, said Ashot Ghazarian, Director of AGBU Armenian Representation. “We are raising the popularity of chess in the republic, increase its role and meaning in the society. I would like to thank AGBU, which has already donated more than 4000 chess sets to the schools of Armenia, and that creates a solid basis for the future development of chess in the republic”, said Smbat Lputyan, Vice President of the RA Chess Federation. Thanks to the financial assistance of the AGBU this year the participants of the tournament will receive 2000 chess sets and 80 chess clocks. Another 300 chess sets and 70 chess clocks will be given to the winners of the second and third rounds of the tournament. The winners of the finale, scheduled for May 2010, will receive computers thanks to the AGBU assistance.
