MCA HONORS KIDS' LIT CHAMPIONS AT I LOVE MCLEAN CELEBRATION
Published on 3/24/2023
Kids’ Lit Quiz is an annual literature quiz for students ages 10 to 13. Kids’ Lit Quiz was created to acknowledge and motivate readers at a time when pleasure reading traditionally declines for youths. Students compete in teams to answer questions about book characters, authors, genres, first sentences, and book terminology.
In February, the Cooper Middle School Kids’ Lit Quiz Team competed in Hartford, Connecticut, and was one of five teams to progress to the national final. After five rounds of the fast-paced buzzer-style competition, the Cooper MS team successfully earned first place and was named national champion. In July, the Cooper team will travel to New Zealand and represent the United States in a world final competing against students representing Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, and Thailand.
Team Members: Evelyn Volova, Carmen Appel, Lachlan Thomas, Lachlan Thomas, Kylie Rudinsky, Sponsor – Marci Love Thomas.
