This year's Kids Lit Quiz saw 2 teams from South competing against 52 other teams from Canterbury for the honour of being this year's kids lit champions. Each team's knowledge of children's literature was tested over 10 rounds intended to challenge even the most confident and well-read teams. Question categories included Amphibians, Babies, Birthdays, Captains Caves and more.

As always the competition was fierce and after five rounds the Year 8 team was well placed. The second half of the competition was tense with all teams striving for success. As the final results were announced, the South 1 Team of Aaron, Luca, Macey and Maisie took out the top spot with an impressive 86 points out of a possible 100. A stunning result from the Year 8 team who will once again compete in the New Zealand KIds Lit final in Wellington.
