More than 1,300 young chess players from 40 states competed at the Marriott Orlando World Center Resort in a three-day seven-round tournament. GBW was represented by 11 students from 3rd to 6th grade.

The 5th grade team, consisting of Ryan Xu, Revanth Vejju, and Vivian Cao-Dao, won the team championship with a three-point margin.
