Kids Lit Quiz

Kids' Lit Quiz is an International literature Quiz for Students aged between 10 and 13 Years. Called 'The Sport of Reading' it is a way to celebrate and reward those students who love to read and give them the opportunity to take part as a team of 4 students in a fun collaborative way. There is no 'book list' as the aim is to encourage reading for pleasure and wide reading. All aspects of Children's Literature is covered in the Quiz including questions about books to movies, award winning books, popular fiction, authors and illustrators to name just a few possible categories.

Heats in Australia will be taking place at this stage in NSW, Queensland and ACT from the 16th to the 28th March 2018 with the National Final taking place in Sydney on 4th May 2018. The World Final will be in Auckland, New Zealand from the 1st - 8th July 2018 and the winning team from the Australian Final will be invited to take part.
