Points are awarded to each player depending on their position in their section: Primary, Lower Secondary (Form1-Form3), Upper Secondary (Form4-Upper 6th). These points are added over the series of the childrens chess tournaments. At the end of the sequence the top 3 from each player are added and the top 4 from each section is invited to Stormont. The top player being awarded the Belfast Scholastic Shield - one of the hardest chess prizes to win in Northern Ireland.
