Baird Sponsors San Francisco Scholastic Chess Championship

On March 28, 2015, Baird partnered with the Mechanics’ Institute to host the second annual San Francisco Scholastic Chess Championship in Golden Gate Park. Two hundred San Francisco-area students of diverse grade levels, abilities and backgrounds competed for such prizes as free entry to the Mechanics’ Institute summer chess camp and an all-expenses-paid trip to participate in the Nationals championship. The tournament was free to all participants. 

KCBS’ Curtiss Kim spoke with two of the students who participated in the Baird-sponsored event.
