[Press Release] DCF congratulates winners of chess tournament at the State College

Winners of the Chess Tournament


The Dominica Chess Federation congratulates the students who participated in the Chess tournament held on May 16 and 23 at the Dominica State College. Chess players continue to learn, enjoy and excel at this amazing game while testing their competitive skills among themselves.

The following winners were awarded in a presentation at the college on Thursday, May 25, for their outstanding performance in the tournament:

1st place: Karhmeron Severin
2nd place: Levien Gilbert
3rd place: Jeriel Francis

The Dominica Chess Federation is pleased to observe such events and salutes the other sponsors – Emerald Movies and Nera’s Baking Delights who supported the tournament organizers in fostering continuous improvement among chess players.

The Federation looks forward to more of such activities especially as it continues to roll out its Chess in Schools Program, an initiative which is expected to lead to more students playing the game, and ultimately allow for the holding of inter-school tournaments.

Playing chess is known to have many benefits, including stimulating the brain, promoting strategic thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as improving attention and cognitive functions. Schools wishing to secure support of the Dominica Chess Federation in moving forward with chess at their institutions may contact them at telephone number 285 4500 or via email at: [email protected].
