If you are under 18, there is still time to apply for free teaching lessons from professionals, through the American Go Foundation. Yi Lun Yang 7P, Janice Kim 3P, and Jennie Shen 2P, will offer lessons online to students who qualify. Applicants must be AGA members, currently in grades K-12, and not had private professional lessons before (attending a lesson at a previous congress is not a problem). Applicants will be judged on their demonstrated interest in go, their short essays and any letters of recommendation. Finalists may be asked to play a game against a strong amateur to confirm their enthusiasm. Six lessons will be provided to each player selected. The deadline for applications is January 1 2013.
