The National Elementary Championship was held May 9-11, 2014 in Dallas, Texas. Eleven Georgia scholastic players traveled to Dallas, Texas to participate in this event. Over 300 Georgia scholastic players had attended the Junior High Championship in Atlanta two weeks previously, which may have accounted for a lower turnout here in Dallas. Over 2200 scholastic players attended, including over 600 New York players and over 780 Texas players, overall a good turnout. There were seven rounds of G/120; d/5.
