The Event

On May 3, 2013 Ithaca College hosts “The Tori Cup: Fantasy and Science Fiction Challenge,” in which teams of students, teachers, conference presenters, and local science fiction/fantasy fans compete to demonstrate their knowledge of all things imaginative and wonderful (film, television, comics, and literature for children, young adults, and adults). This competition is jointly sponsored by the “Pippi to Ripley: the Female Figure in Fantasy and Science Fiction” conference and the Ithaca Community Arts Partnership’s “Spring Writes Literary Festival."

The event will be a knowledge competition in the vein of "College Bowl" or "High School Challenge" and will help promote literacy and celebrate our well-read fan community. This will be an awesome opportunity for kids who like to read to find others with the same interests and make friends!

We're calling this event "The Tori Cup", after an Ithaca College student, Tori Howell, who recently passed away in an accident. She was passionate about the topics being covered in this competition, and we're organizing this event to help support causes that she endorsed during her life.
