Thank you to our 2019 author teams

Kids’ Lit Quiz Canada is grateful to the many wonderful authors who competed in the Sport of Reading this year.

What is Kids’ Lit Quiz™?

An established international literature competition for 10 – 13 year olds

Team members must be under 14 years of age on the 1st of July.

  • Showcasing readers worldwide for 25 years
  • Created by Quizmaster Wayne Mills, who writes hundreds of new questions each year
  • Over 1000 schools compete in annual tournaments in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, United Kingdom and USA

A fun, rewarding experience

  • Teams answer 100 questions over 10 categories based on any children’s book published in English
  • Students train by reading voraciously, and working on collaboration skills to create the strongest team possible
  • Children explore a wide variety of authors and genres
  • Regional winners compete in a National Final; the winning team advances to the KLQ World Final
  • Prizes are awarded at every level

Why Does Kids’ Lit Quiz™ Matter?

Provides a meaningful activity for middle grade students

  • Teachers and parents see their students become part of a global community of readers
  • Students are engaged at an age when reading for pleasure tends to fall off due to electronic distractions and more academic reading
  • KLQ creates a culture of reading – library traffic increases and readers are celebrated throughout the school
  • Readers experience being on a team with coaches, practices, and tournaments
  • KLQ attracts all students – roughly 40% of competitors each year are boys
  • Studies show that students who read for fun have higher test scores in vocabulary, spelling, and math

Canada hosted the 2017 Kids Lit Quiz™ World Final!

KLQ is exploding in popularity!

  • In 2011, Canada held its first quiz… with only 13 teams
  • In 2016, 117 teams competed across the country for the chance to represent Canada at the World Final in Auckland, New Zealand

Kids’ Lit Quiz™ Canada is a registered charity, run entirely by volunteers who are dedicated to inspiring youth to become lifelong readers.

Kids’ Lit Quiz™ Canada relies on the generosity of public and private sponsors to help fund our programs across Canada.
