On May 2, 2015 Ithaca College will host “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 Ithacon 40, Ithaca's own comic book convention.
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 passed away in an accident in 2012. 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.
On this website you can learn Info
about the event like when and where it will be, more information about
creating teams and information about our three competition divisions.
