1st Hunger Games
Sparks was reaped for the 1st Hunger Games by District 12 escort Pia Chino. As District 12 isn't a district where children are eager to be reaped, there were no volunteers to take his place. The female tribute reaped for the games was Ellis Gron.
In the opening ceremony, Sparks was styled by the District 12 head stylist Rosalie Chorge. As District 12's industry is coal, Chorge designed a coal-covered costume for her tributes. They placed 6th out of 12.
In training, Sparks showed an interest in learning how to wield an axe, and went through training for it. In his private session with the judges, Sparks demonstrated his newly-learned axe throwing skills, and was given a score of 3.
