Four The Armidale School (TAS) students are through to the 2020 Kids' Lit Quiz national after winning the Armidale heat on Tuesday.
The diverse reading interests of Scarlett Buntine, Charlotte Craig, Samuel Guppy and Austin Pease delivered the year seven students the finals berth after they successfully answered the most literary-related questions.
The students beat out 19 teams or primary and secondary students from Armidale, Inverell and Tenterfield in the heat of the annual literature competition, in which teams of four students, aged 10 to 14, work together to answer wide-ranging literary questions.
Students are asked questions across eight different categories, including dogs, insects, islands, journeys, masks, pot luck, reptiles and riddles.
"Riddles was the hardest section, and the easiest was probably pot luck, which had a lot of random things," Austin said.
"I liked the way it tests your knowledge about books," Charlotte added.
The foursome will be looking at expanding their reading further in the lead up to the national finals to be held early in term four.
