Art City Elementary School’s Chess Club had the opportunity to compete in the Utah State Chess Tournament held at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on Saturday, March 13. Art City’s students have been working hard on their chess skills, competing on the school and district level since October. Students are taught on their level of skill and progress through harder lessons as the year goes on, which gets them ready for tournaments. Thanks go to all those who helped and supported the students through the past four months.

The following are individual and team results: Art City Individual results: Kindergarten: Spencer Wilson, 2nd. First grade: Tyson Tanner, 2nd; Kaylee Elzinga, 3rd; and Celeste Jenkins, 35th.
