ACTJCL has just succeeded in receiving a Women's Sport Grant to run a school holiday program for Girls playing chess.

We were knocked back last year (part of the brief is to get girls into physical activity) but we worked on our application and did our best to meet the criteria and make our case and have received $1800 for our trouble.

Persistance pays. As does a little elbow grease.

Best of luck to the Canberra Chess Chicks. :clap: (I noticed from the other applicants that cheesy program name seems to be one of the selection criteria. :) )

I know, Jenni was cringing but when I looked at those who had been in the money previously it did seem to be part of the package.

I guess my point is that we were able to get a grant, even with the cloud of physical activity being part of the criteria. I've attached our application in case anyone wants a look.
