The ISB Middle School team was victorious and brought home the much-coveted title of China Champions in the annual Kids’ Lit Quiz China Finals which was held in Shanghai on Friday, December 7.

  There were all together 17 teams from nine international schools in China gathered in Shanghai to compete for the title.

  The competition was fierce, and the participating schools were well-matched. ISB and Concordia International School Shanghai (CISS) tied for first place, with Shanghai American School (SAS) and Yew Chung International School (YCIS) tying for second.

  After a “sudden death” play-off, ISB carried away the trophy, with CISS and SAS taking second and third places, respectively.

  Wayne Mills, quizmaster and founder of Kids’ Lit Quiz , said it was the closest final in the 17 years of this competition. Clearly, international schools in China have very strong readers throughout, making for extremely exciting rivalries.

  The ISB Middle School team, eighth graders Kailene Chen and Nicole Zhu, and seventh graders Rachel Xiao and Evelyn Wang, will participate in the Kids’ Lit Quiz World Finals which takes place in Oxford, UK, in July 2008.
