What is Kids’ Lit Quiz™?

An established international literature competition for 10 – 13 year olds

  • 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.
