Trivia Q: What are the names of the other schools that compete with Hogwarts in the Triwizard Tournament?
The Triwizard Tournament is a famous contest between the schools of Hogwarts, Durmstrang (an all-boys school), and Beauxbatons (an all-girls school). It originated some 700 years ago as a friendly competition between the three schools. Each school took turns hosting the Tournament, which took place every five years. The judges for the tournament included the heads of the three schools. The tournament consists of a series of tasks designed to test the champions in many different ways: their magical prowess, their daring, their powers of deduction, and their ability to cope with danger. Cheating was also considered a normal, traditional part of the Tournament.
