    Twenty-eight children from Karamay city in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region received weiqi grades on Feb 21, after taking part in a grading competition.

    More than ten dozen children attended the competition, which ultimately crowned the six-year-boy, Wang Bohan, as champion. All competitors at the event received qualifications according to their performance.

    The competition has been held for seven years in a row; the last two years has seen an increase in the number of children participating.

    The event was designed to find more talented young players and cultivate them into talented weiqi players in the future, said Ye Xiaoyun, vice head of the city's Weiqi Association.
