Information is a bit hard to come by, but here goes:

The 2007 U.S. Junior Invitational Championship, for players age 20 and under, is currently underway in Tampa, Florida. It began June 17 and will conclude on June 21. After two rounds (out of nine total), only Corey Acor of Florida has managed two wins. A half-point behind are Marc Tyler Arnold from New York (last year's Cadet winner) and Georgia's Xiao Cheng. The other players are Mackenzie Molner, Alexander Barnett, Elliott Liu, Ryan Milisits, Teddy Coleman, Ray Robson, and Eric Rodriguez. Selected games are being presented at MonRoi.

The 2007 U.S. Cadet Championship (age 16 and under) is being played concurrently. Six players are in this ten-round event: Robert Lau, Evan Ju, Warren Harper, Jeffrey Haskel, Alec Getz and Thomas Riccardi.

When these two tournaments conclude, the 2007 U.S. Junior Open Championship will start. It is scheduled to run from June 22-24.
