What awards are given out at CIS tournaments?
Individual and team awards are provided at all CIS tournaments. At standard CIS tournaments, the top five individuals and top two teams from each section will receive a trophy. At some special events, more prizes are given to individuals. Medals are given to players that finish in the top 10% of a section but do not win a trophy. For most events, 3 points will earn a medal, for larger sections 3.5 is required.
*Students who score 3 or more points in an unrated section must purchase a USCF membership and play in a rated section for all future CIS tournaments.
