Kids' Lit Quiz 2014

Mind blowing young readers with their phenomenal knowledge of the contents of so many books made up the Wellington Regional leg of the Kids’ Lit Quiz (brain child of Wayne Mills senior lecturer in the Faculty of Education at the University of Auckland) last Friday (28.3.14) at Papakowhai School, north of Wellington. All of us who were privileged to be part of the team of markers came away knowing just why we spend so much of our lives working with books for children and young adults…

The winners of the Wellington Regional heats were Wellesley College from Eastbourne, second were Mt Cook School and third came Evans Bay Intermediate. 
For a complete list of winners in each region (as they happen) just Google 2014 Kids Lit Quiz 

The New Zealand final will be held at National Library, Wellington on Tuesday June 10th 1pm.  The World Final will be held at the Princess Pavilion, Falmouth, Cornwall, United Kingdom also at 1pm  on July 8th  2014.

(This is probably my favourite book event of the year!)
