contests and kings

Once upon a time, there was a king.  He decreed that, in order to encourage the wizardry students to vie for greatness, that there would be a contest between schools every year.

It has denigrated since. I think.

I suspect that the award's been passed around because every school gets its chance to decide what the challenge is, and always chooses its own strength.

Which means I have to define the schools, and their headmasters. . . and who knows whether it's useful elsewhere?

Details always come up.
