What is The World Students GO OZA Championship?
The World Students GO OZA Championship is a championship in which 16 students chosen from various countries around the world, including from Asia, compete. It was founded in 2003, and the 14th championship will be held in February 2016. Not only the players but also the organizers are students: it's an international championship run by students for students.

This championship is held not only to decide the world's number one student player but also to promote exchange among Go-playing students around the world. Besides the Go competition, sightseeing events are also organized for the participants.

Until the 7th championship, the players were chosen by recommendation by their national Go associations, but as of the 8th championship, preliminary championships are being held on the Internet with the cooperation of Pandanet Inc. Changing the selection method in this way means that more students can participate, so we can expect a high-level championship with many strong players from around the world competing.

Moemi Noguchi, Representative Manager, The All-Japan Students GO Association
