Tim attends Kids’ Lit Quiz National Final
Wednesday, 9th December, 2015
Tim attended The Kids’ Lit Quiz National Final at Oxford Town Hall on Friday 4th December.
The Kids’ Lit Quiz is an annual literature quiz for students aged 10 – 13 years. Quizzes are 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.
Authors, teachers, librarians, booksellers, school children, publishers, VIPs and special guest author Frank Cottrell Boyce attended the National Final. Each year individual teams are supported by authors, which this year included Jo Cotterill, Mary Hoffman, Helen Moss, Lucy Coats and Tim. Tim has supported The Kids’ Lit Quiz for many years and this year championed Howell’s School in Llandaffn. Tim is seen here leading Team Howell’s into Oxford Town Hall.
The nail-biting competition was won by Hamilton College from the West of Scotland with Litcham School and Cockermouth School in second and third place. Howell’s School did very well and were in the top five.
