PIA Press Release

First Ifugao kiddie chess tournament conducted

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Lagawe, Ifugao (26 June) -- In an effort to discover the skills of the young particularly in the field of sports, the Ifugao Chess club conducted recently a chess tournament for kids here.

Kennedy Bongolan, President of the Ifugao Chess Club said that this is one way of exposing the children in competitions. We are helping them discover their skills or talents as young as they are, he said.

The first ever tournament to include the participation of the kids aging 12 years old and below, and 13 years old and above, Bongolan disclosed that the activity is in line with the Department of Education's memorandum to include school children in order to enhance their talents.

Bungolan also said that this is a venue for the sports committee to discover new and young talents who might compete locally, at the national level and even internationally.

Participated by the different schools all over the province, children who were non participants but were there watching became interested and expressed their willingness to join in future competitions. This is one way of helping mold the young minds so they will not be influenced by vices that might destroy their future, Bongolan said.

Kenneth Dango of Lamut bagged the first place; Micah Salvador of Kiangan got the second place, third is Jimmy Jess Dango of Lagawe, fourth is John Dominong Bongolan of Hingyon and also received a special prize for being the youngest players and fifth Damiano Anselmo Jr of Lagawe who got a consolation prize.

In Category II where kids aging 13 years old and above competed, Frederick Bintudan of Lagawe got first place; second is Telesporo Dinamling of Asipulo and third Victor Dango of Lamut. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
