The Wyoming Scholastic Chess Championship allows young women and young men to qualify to represent Wyoming at either the Susan Polgar Tournament or the Denker Tournament for High School Champions. These tournaments are held at the US Open Chess Tournament every year. Wyoming's last Denker player was Andrew Smith of Cheyenne. We hope that somewhere there is a young man or young woman who would like to take up the challenge of representing Wyoming. These tournaments allow young people to make friendships and create memories of a lifetime. Hope you can come to play in the Wyoming Scholastic Chess Championship.
