According to the official Victory Tour 2013 website, Victory Tour 2013 will be held in an undisclosed location in North Carolina, revealed only to Tributes who are the most passionate about the Hunger Games and what it stands for. It is an arena devised to encourage education and healthy discussion. You will meet the gamemakers and the fansites dedicated to keeping us out from under Capitol supremacy. You will laugh in the face of tyranny at the Hunger Games Musical, conquer your fears during The Tribute Games, and declare your stylistic freedom during the district fashion extravaganza.
The Gamemakers are looking for donations to help bring some big-name stars to the event, as well. If you'd like to donate (and receive some great perks in return), visit the Victory Tour 2013 donation page.
Share the news about the Victory Tour 2013 with your students to generate even more excitement for the novel.
