Hunger Games
these take place every year (we are in the 74th Hunger Games); they are mandatory to watch for ALL Panem citizens; a boy and a girl from each district is elected to compete in this televised death battle
Tribute
term for someone selected to be a part of the Hunger Games
Reaping Day
term for the day that the Tributes are selected from each district
tesserae
a token worth a year's supply of grain for one person; by opting to put your name into the Reaping more than required, you can earn a tesserae of food (thus making the Hunger Games unfair for the poor)
Careers
these are kids who are raised and trained to fight in the Hunger Games (even though this is against the rules); they volunteer to be a part of it, as it is an honor; usually from wealthy districts
Districts
districts are like states within Panem; very little communication occurs between districts, and each district has its own unique industry and perosnality
District Token
an item that each Tribute is permitted to wear as a symbol of good luck; Katniss wears the mockingjay pin
mockingjay
genetically altered birds that can repeat songs as a means of communication (they used to be used as spies during the Rebellion)
Avox
person convicted of a crime against Panem/the Capitol; they have to have their tongue cut out and are used as servants in the Capitol.
Suzanne Collins
author of The Hunger Games
