Franco Nord-Ouest Chess Tournament Returns to Wawa

Young chess masters are gathering in Wawa today.

Wawa's École Saint-Joseph is hosting its sixth Franco-Nord-Ouest Chess Tournament, bringing players from French schools across the region, dividing them into four categories: grades three and four; five and six; seven and eight; and secondary school.

Teacher and organizer René-Guy Nobert says the students are playing for something other than prizes.

Nobert expects a full slate of 150 students to participate in this year's tournament.
