The Kids’ Lit Quiz is a not-for-profit organisation which has (or is about to obtain) charity status in some of the countries in which it operates. It is run and managed exclusively by volunteers, who give up hours of their time to enable the competition to thrive and grow. Each country has a National co-ordinator backed up by regional co-ordinators and dozens of voluntary helpers. 

Since it began in 1991 the quiz has spread across the world, with national competitions being held in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Canada, the USA, Australia, SingaporeHong Kong and Indonesia. You can jump quickly to more information about your country using the KLQ Across the World section on the right of every page.
