The Kids’ Lit Quiz is an annual literature quiz for students aged 10 – 13 years, held in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom and USA.
The winning team from each heat competes in a National Final. National champions compete in the World final.
The quiz was founded by New Zealand quizmaster Wayne Mills, who reads enough books to write several thousand questions each year.
Howick Prep entered into the Pietermaritzburg Regional Quiz yesterday, 22 February, held at Athlone Primary.
