Warsaw Community Schools Annual Chess Tournament - Because studies have shown children who learn chess gain increased concentration, enhanced reasoning, logic, and improved cognitive skills.  The WEF is quite proud to be a primary sponsor of the Annual Chess Tournament which recognizes students for their ability as well as their desire to master the game of chess. All Warsaw Community Schools' chess club supplies were purchased with funds from the WEF and all awards presented at the Annual Chess Tournament are made possible by the WEF.

N.E.W. Opportunities Workshop - Allows high school girls to explore careers in fields they may have thought were only for men.  N.E.W. stands for Nontraditional Employment for Women.Careers such as carpenter, bricklayer, attorney, and air traffic controller are traditionally thought of as being "for men only."  The WEF recognizes the importance of providing this academic exploration opportunity for our young women and has committed to sponsoring this workshop each year.  This event has become a model in the State of Indiana and has been presented at national conferences.

Scholarships for WCS Summer Enrichment Camp - Summer camp is fun and Warsaw Community Schools offers some awesome week-long camps each year!  Unfortunately, not all students have the opportunity to attend due to financial constraints.  The WEF sponsors several students each year with "Summer Enrichment Camp Scholarships" so they can explore a variety of topics ranging from art to space science.
