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!

well I’m 24 and I entered. What could it hurt the worst they could do is not concider me. Since I didn’t see an age limit I was like “what the heck” and put my info in. Maybe they’ll think its funny to put an adult up against a kid and see who knows more, you never know! Good luck to all that applied.

It sounds like the website should be grateful to Leaky for posting this news item, they seem to have gleaned a lot of entrants through this!

Good luck to all who enter!! Note to alicia00 19+ is not old geezers. Most of the 20+ started reading about Harry when they were 10 years younger and I’m 68 and a rabid Harry Potter fan so there! Anyway hope you enter and win. What a wonderful thing Ellen is doing – the more publicity the better!!!
