Kids Lit Quiz

Welcome to the 2019 heats of the Australian International Kids’ Lit Quiz™. This is a literary quiz which has been running for 28 years. It is open to students in Years five, six and seven. However, students must be under 14 years as of 1st July 2019 to participate.

Because we understand that selecting a team can take time, a pre-test is made available that may assist you in your school’s selection. The pre-test is intended to be given to a team rather than an individual. All you really need, however, are a group of four students who read widely. The team then works collaboratively during the quiz to answer 100 questions in ten categories. The categories are diverse in order to cater for all reading tastes. Book prizes are awarded and there are prizes for the winning team. The event lasts for three hours, with a twenty-minute break at the halfway point.

The Kids’ Lit Quiz™ competition is designed to be huge fun, with an element of competition, personal challenge and reward that is seldom available to children whose passion is reading. Just taking part in one of the regional heats provides important experiences that many children may not otherwise have. The quiz is held in eleven countries on five continents.

This coming year the World Final of the quiz will be held in Singapore. Students will visit the renowned Singapore Zoo, the Asian Civilisation Museum, and the spectacular Gardens by the Bay as well as experiencing a Duck tour. We would like to offer this year’s winning team from Australia an invitation to attend the World Final this coming July from Monday 8th to Monday 15th. 
We look forward to receiving your entry.
