The Harry Potter Trivia Tournament (TBS)

So, last evening I volunteered at the 7th annual Harry Potter Trivia Tournament in Vacaville, CA. Over one hundred kids and teens met to test their trivia skills and help raise money to support local literacy efforts. As always, I was very impressed by their knowledge and their costumes. Mind you, we ended up with a few non-Harry Potter costumes this year. Go figure. The folks in grades 2-6 were quizzed on books 1-3, and the junior high and high school students encountered questions about books 4-6. This year even saw some really great raffle prizes. We had a wand from Alivan’s, a stuffed Hedwig, and a phoenix puppet just to name a few. This year, I went dressed as a random Ravenclaw.

Here’s a link to the article in the paper, complete with a couple of photos,:
