Quiz Kids (Series) (1978-1985)

Quiz Kids was a half-hour game show for elementary school children produced in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. Each week a whole class arrived at the studio. From the class, six children are selected and divided into two groups, three under the word "QUIZ" and three under the word "KIDS." A panel was asked to choose a number which lit up, and the category of questions was declared. Questions were based on an ordinary child's knowledge of fairy tales, nursery rhymes, spelling, elementary science, and history/geography. Ten points were awarded for a correct answer. If an error was made, the group lost points and the question went to the opposing team. A version of the show was also carried in Toronto on CBLT on Saturdays and was available to other CBC-owned and-operated stations.
