Giant Chess Gloucester!
My awesome project is actually very simple. With the money, I will purchase a giant chess set, similar to the one you may see at the summer Block Parties (I'm usually the one playing everyone). I will then bring the chess board and pieces with me to locations that I will alert people to before hand, and take on all challenges. I will have a large white board to keep score of my wins and losses (I'm above average to really good at chess, so it will be mostly wins with maybe a couple of losses and a tie here and there), friends to take pictures, and prizes for those who win. I will also gladly attend events at schools with the chess set if asked.
