Welcome to the 16th year of the West Midlands heat of this International literary quiz.
The Quiz is open to students in years 6, 7 and 8. Teams are made up of four students and schools can enter a maximum of two schools in a heat. The winning team from the heat go forward to represent the region in the UK National Final. The team which wins this is then invited to the International Final next summer being held in Singapore.
The Kids’ Lit Quiz™ encourages students to read widely for pleasure across genres and authors. The team 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 and the second and third place runners up. 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.
The West Midlands heat is taking place on Friday 16 November at The Butts Park Arena from 2pm - 5pm. If you would like to enter a team or would like more information then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
