The Kids Literature Quiz (KLQ) is an annual literature competition for children aged 10 to 13. It puts readers onto the centre stage and lets them compete for fantastic prizes. The quiz has heats in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Canada, USA, China and Australia, with the winning teams qualifying for national and world finals. It is a major celebration of books and reading imported to the UK from New Zealand. It offers irresistible reading challenges, broadens awareness, is hugely motivating for boys - and, best of all, is great fun.
Wellington College has hosted all seven of the Northern Ireland Regional heats of the KLQ and staged the event on Thursday 15th November 2012.
