The Dewain Barber National Tournament of Middle School State Champions is a free event that invites each state affiliate's nominee to compete for the title of 2021 Barber National Champion. If there is a tie for first place in the Barber, co-champions will be recognized.
The Executive Board of US Chess has added the Barber Champion to its list of qualifiers for the World Youth or the World Cadet Championship and the US Cadet Championship. The qualifying student in case of a tie will be the highest finishing player on tie-breaks who meets the eligibility requirements of the World Youth/World Cadet event for the US Chess delegation and the US Cadet Championship. The qualifying person needs a US FIDE flag to be eligible to represent the US in the World Youth/World Cadet and US Cadet Championships.
