Kid's Literature Quiz

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:08 pm on 1 July 2014

Twenty-three years ago Wayne Mills was attending his childrens' intermediate school prize-givings when he realised that among all the certificates being handed out for sports and other activities there were no prizes being awarded for reading. Being a senior lecturer focused on children and their literacy - he soon struck upon an idea to reward young readers - in the form of a quiz. He started up his 'Kid's Literature Quiz' and it went from strength to strength - first rolling out through New Zealand and then throughout the world.
