STUDENTS from 20 schools met to test their knowledge of books at a Kids' Lit Quiz in Ipswich yesterday.

In the Ipswich heat of the quiz teams of four students attempted to answer 100 questions about books, reading and publishing.

Kids' Lit Quiz events help to encourage the "sport of reading" around the world, organiser Nicole Deans said.

The events allow children to compete in a style similar to that of their sports-minded friends, she said.

The local heat was hosted at Ipswich Girls' Grammar School and was open to students aged 10 to 13 years.

The school that wins the Queensland heat will have the chance to compete in the national final in Canberra on Friday, February 22.
