Sanders to host inaugural 'Youth Chess Day' for Vermont students on Saturday
Vermont Business Magazine Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) will hold his first annual “Youth Chess Day” on Saturday, April 1. This event is part of a series of initiatives organized by Sanders to provide opportunities for civic engagement and community for Vermont youth, ranging from student town halls held virtually and in person, his State of the Union Essay Contest, Vermont Day at the Edward Kennedy Institute, and many more. This inaugural event will take place at Vermont Technical College in Randolph and will feature a learn-to-play session for students interested in trying out the game for the first time, as well as a recreational tournament for experienced players. Sanders will speak with the students and their families about the game of chess, education and after school activities, and other topics of importance to them.
