Kids’ Lit Quiz™

What is Kids’ Lit Quiz™?



Kids’ Lit Quiz™ is an annual literature competition for children aged 10 to 13. Students pit their wits against one another to answer questions about literature ranging from classics to comics to contemporary novels.


The Quiz was conceived in 1991 and is run by New Zealander Wayne Mills, who was a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Education in the University of Auckland.


It has heats in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and USA. Each year, the winning team from each country participates in a World Finals event which usually takes place in July or August.


Singapore intends to send a team to the Kids’ Lit Quiz™ World Finals in Auckland, New Zealand to be held on 19 August 2016. This will be the third year that Singapore is participating in the competition since 2014.


Clementi Primary School was the inaugural team that represented Singapore at the Kids’ Lit Quiz™ World Finals in Cornwall (United Kingdom) in 2014 and Kids’ Lit Quiz™ World Finals in Connecticut (USA) in 2015.
