The Indian Quizzing League (IQL) is planning its first Winter Camp in quizzing for children aged 10-15. Aimed at school going children, this will happen over two weekends from Jan 2 to 10, 2009.

The IQL is a Chennai based quiz club aimed at making quizzing fun. Apart from having regular quiz meetings, the IQL also hosts quizzes for schools, colleges and their independent India Quiz, an annual quiz that happens on January 26.  

The inaugural summer camp was held between May 16-24, 2009 in Chennai. This was attended by 10 participants from various parts and schools of Chennai (there was one girl from Kota, Rajasthan as well!!). Mr.VV Ramanan, Ace quizmaster for The Hindu group was Guest Quizmaster/ speaker at one of the sessions sharing his vast experience of more than 25 years in the quizzing field.

During the course of this camp, the IQL also launched their first Quiz newsletter called the IQL KnowBytes. This is available for public subscription. Please contact us for more information on this.

IQL brings with it a rich experiences of conducting nearly 100 quizzes across Chennai and we believe that this camp is a good starting point for children to get into the world of quizzing. Topics covered in the camp include basic methods of collecting information, sources for trivia and facts, how to make quizzing fun, do’s and don’ts of quizzing and the various interesting stories surrounding questions. There would also be a grand finale quiz covering different topics, giving the kids a taste of the different kinds of rounds along with the funda behind each trivia being presented.
