Judit Polgar’s Global Chess Festival
What We Did
We had the opportunity to work with a living LEGEND: Judit Polgár
Her team asked us to give PR support for the Global Chess Festival. The theme of this year’s festival was Women in Chess, Women in Science. To emphasize this important topic we found interesting hungarian girls with even more interesting occupations. What connected these girls is Chess! All of them played the game and now they were able to share their story about how chess influenced their life.
In the framework of the festival, the international conference “Chess in Education” was held in cooperation with the European Chess Union (ECU), and this year’s patron, Georgia’s Minister of Education and Science, Dr. Mikheil Chkhenkeli, in his speech, underlined “Chess is proven to be one of the most powerful tools we can give children to succeed in school and life.”
