The Arthur Award

January 2, 2021

As you already know, every day I will be uploading a short video to educate, entertain and inspire our global community of chess players. Today’s daily chess musing definitely falls into the category of inspiration.

The Eade Foundation’s deadline for this year’s Arthur Award for Chess Excellence submissions is January 30th. The Arthur Award’s purpose is to recognize players working towards the Eade Foundation’s mission of enhancing chess literacy and chess excellence. A $1000 prize will be given to the best essay received by the Eade Foundation no later than January 30th. According to the Eade Foundation website, “The essay should include evidence of the chess excellence already obtained by the potential recipient, how the award will be used to obtain further chess excellence, and how that chess excellence will be used to further the mission of the Eade Foundation.” 

So there you have it. An opportunity to win one thousand dollars for striving toward chess excellence. Talk about inspiring. Plus even if you don’t win first place, you still come out ahead for simply trying. As the old saying goes, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
