A joint project of the Department of Education (DEPED) through the initiative of Assistant Secretary Tonisito Umali and National Chess Federation of the Philippines (NCFP), headed by its president, Prospero A. Pichay, Jr., the tournament is open to all public and private elementary and high schools nationwide.
