This year’s World School Chess Championship was held at Wyndham Convention Center in Panama City. The competition began on June 10, and the finals happened on June 19. It became a successful and unforgettable event under the guidance of the International Chess Federation (FIDE) and the Panama Chess Federation.

According to the University of Memphis, playing chess enhances children’s visual memory, attention span, and spatial-reasoning ability. Perhaps that’s because concentration and memory go hand in hand in chess as in school. Chess Tournaments help a child fulfill intermediate chess goals. Winning games in the classroom or at a friend’s house is fun, but when one wins a tournament game, it is memorable and boosts confidence.
