Since January The Record has been testing the knowledge of young people in the Townships by publishing a quiz each week with five questions related to news that appeared the week before in the paper. Students who participated and answered the questions were entered into a draw to win a 16-GB Fire tablet.
This month’s winner is Abygail, a student at Princess Elizabeth Elementary School. Abygail participated in The Record’s final quiz last week. She also had some help from her younger brother Jake. Together they were able to answer every question correctly. This concludes the newspaper’s Amazon Fire Tablet contest.
The four lucky winners did an impressive job with the quiz, getting all the answers right and proving they are up to date with the news in the region.
Below are the questions and answers from last week’s quiz. The Record would like to thank all of the participants and congratulate the winners.
