As a follow up to our post about the Ellen DeGeneres Show taping from Universal Studios Orlando and broadcasting a 'sneak peek' at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park, the talk show's  website has put out a call for those knowledgeable in everything Harry Potter.  In the "Be Part of the Show' section, the following call has been issued:

Do you have a precocious child who knows everything there is to know about Harry Potter books and movies? Is talking about Harry Potter his or her favorite subject? If so, we want to hear about them! Click here to tell us about your little wizard.
A following prompt asks for a 1500 character (maximum) story about the young Harry Potter fan, as well as a photo of the entrant.  If the fan is under the age of 18, the form must be filled out by a parent or guardian on the young fan's behalf.

For full information about this call, and to enter, click here.

Many thanks, Tracy!

Precocious child? Ya i’m 24 so I don’t think I’m elibible. But I definitely agree this wording is unnecessairly confusing.

I don’t think it’s really fair for those of us who were kids when Harry Potter started and are now technically young adults. I was 8 reading the first HP book. Now I’m just turning 19. Why can’t we participate in stuff like this when we grew up with the series? Really wouldn’t call myself a “precious little child” who hit puberty a long time ago. :(

Guys it says PRE-CO-CIOUS child NOT precious! I’m 23, but like everyone else is saying this is worded so strangely that I can’t tell if any age is allowed to enter or not.

Hello???
Anyone reading the word would see it is precocious not precious…
1 : exceptionally early in development or occurrence
2 : exhibiting mature qualities at an unusually early age
