Kids' Lit Quiz 2015

Posted on: 27/11/2014

The Kids’ Lit Quiz is an annual literature competition for children aged 10 to 13 years.  The quiz has heats in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, USA, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and China.  Winning teams qualify for national and world finals and thousands of pupils have participated each year throughout the world.


Mrs Ward, Librarian at Great Torrington School is looking forward to taking nine students on Friday to Tavistock College to compete in the South West of England area final.


Teams of four students, from Year 7 and 8, are asked to answer 100 questions on children’s literature divided into ten categories.  Teams work collaboratively to answer each question put to them by the Quizmaster. There are 18 regional heats in the UK and the winning team from each region competes in the National Final which will be held at Kings’ College School Wimbledon, London.  The overall UK winning team will be invited to compete for the International Title in Connecticut in the summer of 2015.


Please wish our competitors luck and quiz them on books, authors, myths, fables, films…
