Held each school year, the NSCF Grand Prix competition encourages perseverance and the pursuit of excellence in chess by offering special awards to those players who play frequently and well in NSCF tournaments. The competition is structured by grade categories, with point assignments based on the strength of the sections a player has competed in, and the scores achieved in those sections.
For more information, see What do I need to know about the Grand Prix, accessible from the Tournaments FAQ.
