On Wednesday 13th March, a group of students went to Cobham Intermediate for the Kids’Lit Quiz Competition. We arrived at 9:30 with around 27 other schools, and a total of 54 teams! There were ten categories each with ten questions. The categories included Adventure, Birthdays, Footwear, Captains, and many others. Each team selected one category to get double points in – we picked Disabilities and the other team selected Amphibians.
We all helped answer the questions. Between each round, the Quiz Master gave us a question he had used at the previous International Quiz. The prize for answering one of these correctly was a Whitcoulls pack of goodies. One of our team won this prize. Heaton team 1’s highest score was 9/10, and we earned a total 68 points! The Heaton 2 team earned 74, placing seventh in the competition! The event was exciting and super fun. What was cool was that the audience also got involved by being given questions to answer with the chance to win $5 or $10. All in all it was a really fun experience for everyone.
