About Cincinnati Scholastic Chess
Since 2007 Cincinnati Scholastic Chess (CSC) has been organizing chess tournaments in the greater Cincinnati area for scholastic players (grades K through 12). The annual CSC Series offers one tournament per month from October through March. Trophy and medal winners from past Series are posted on our Archive page. In addition to the Series, we have conducted other, stand-alone scholastic tournaments, sometimes in conjunction with the Cincinnati Open and sometimes as part of our Summer OTB events (see more below). We have also hosted eight Ohio state championship events:
- 2012 Elementary Championships
- 2013 High School and Middle School Championships
- 2014 Grade Level Championships
- 2016 High School and Middle School Championships
- 2018 Elementary Championships
- 2019 Girls Championship
- 2019 Grade Level Championships
- 2021 Grade Level Championships

Although CSC was originated for the purpose of promoting scholastic chess in the Cincinnati area, its activity is not limited to scholastics. In 2012 CSC revived the defunct Cincinnati Open, an annual weekend tournament for players of all ages, and ran it every spring since then until 2019. The covid-19 pandemic compelled the cancellation of the Open in 2020, and in May 2021 it was played in a modified format as quads. The Open returned in its usual format on April 1-3, 2022, attracting the largest number of players since CSC revived it. Final results from past Cincinnati Opens are posted on our Archive page. CSC also hosted the 74th Ohio Chess Congress over Labor Day weekend in 2018.
When virtually all over-the-board play was suspended in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic, CSC ventured into the world of online chess, hosting its first series of online tournaments in May 2020. For further information about our online activities, visit our CSC Online page.
As the covid-19 pandemic waned, and encouraged by the response to our May 2021 Cincinnati Open Quads, we further promoted the return to in-person play in August 2021 by conducting our first Summer OTB tournaments for players of all ages. These events are played outdoors in area parks, and include both scholastic tournaments offering trophies and all-comer tournaments offering cash prizes.
