Chair to test Masterminds

29th October 2004 at 01:00
Which planet's orbit is closest to the sun? Who is the oldest person to have been elected president of the United States?

Any 10 or 11-year-olds not reduced to silence by these questions should test their general knowledge from the black Mastermind chair.

Junior Mastermind, which follows the same format as the adult version, is seeking entrants for 2005. The competition is open to anyone born between September 1, 1993 and August 31, 1994. Completed application forms must be returned by November 15.
