Dannevirke Royals – (L to R) Kelly Mui, Nikki Walker, Grace Irwin, Reuben Davis.

Our 5th annual Tararua Library NZ Children’s Book Awards Quiz was held last night.  Schools throughout the district entered 12 teams, to compete for the title of District Champion.  The lead changed several times throughout the 15 rounds of questions, based on the NZ Post Children’s Book Awards Finalist books, but in the end, the title was retained by South School (of Dannevirke) who beat Weber School by one point!

The District Champions will be awarded individual prizes, plus books for their school library, and possession of the trophy for a year.  The highest scoring team from Dannevirke, Woodville, Pahiatua and Eketahuna all received book prizes as well.

Well done to everyone who participated, and thank you to the teachers and parents who supported their children.  Also a big thank you to our organisers and sponsors.  It was a super fun evening, and we look forward to next years event!
