Thanks to Micheal Dudley for contributing to this report.


My name is Isaac Dinnerstein, and I am a senior at Cape Elizabeth High School. As a chess player, I compete in tournaments whenever I can. I have played for years, probably a decade now.
As a teacher, I have done much more. As a weekly teacher to six young chess players, I have tutored them from them learning the rules of chess to where they are now (many of them are very strong now). I also run the Cape Elizabeth Chess Club, and have for going on two years now. I participated in the Denker National Tournament of High School State Champions last year. Before COVID started, I ran a Wednesday afternoon chess club at the library for beginners, and got many new players each week. I always strive to better myself as a chess player, and ultimately, a teacher, because the next generation is the generation that will need to teach the generation after that. Thank you for your consideration!
