Harambe might be dead, but his spirit lives on in all of us. Especially the teens that have come to worship the slain gorilla turned meme.

Chris Hawkins, James Light, and Finn Cattaway won the Otago Daily Times current events quiz in New Zealand on Thursday. The trio beat out 54 other teams with a 97 percent score. And if that wasn’t impressive enough, Cattaway dedicated the victory to none other than Harambe.

The three boys were interviewed for the newspaper. Cattaway told the reporter, “We still haven’t had justice for Harambe,” and that the gorilla’s death should never be forgotten.

Of course this dedication shined brighter than the rest of the interview, with the headline turning out to be “Team’s quiz win was for gorilla.” 

And Cattaway’s totally right—we haven’t had justice for Harambe. But at least this quiz helps bring awareness to the ape’s death.
