The Independent, along with the electronics manufacturer Sharp, is launching next Wednesday a spectacular quiz for schools that gives a prize to every pupil competing. The quiz goes on for four weeks. The top team will win an extraordinary range of Sharp equipment for its school - a photocopier, fax, laser printer, word processor, typewriter and 10 graphic calculators. Each person in the top team wins a portable CD player.
The quiz starts with the publication of the Government's school-league tables, published as a supplement in Wednesday's Independent. The first 20 questions appear then, followed by a further set of questions on each of the three following Wednesdays.
So start work now: your school needs a fiendishly smart team because the questions are designed to be devilishly difficult]
