The First Task of the 1994 Triwizard Tournament took place on 24th November.

From the Story

Discovered in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The Four Champions, "Four Triwizard Champions"[1]

Barty Crouch informs the four champions that the first task is designed to test their daring, and that consequently they will not be telling them what the task is. The task will take place on November the twenty-fourth, in front of a panel of judges and the remaining Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang students. The champions are not allowed to ask for, or accept, any help from their teachers to complete the first task. Crouch also informs them that they will only be permitted their wands as aids during the first challenge.

The First Task, "Facing the Dragon"[2]

The champions must collect the golden egg for their first task of the Triwizard Tournament. Harry's golden egg is placed amongst other dragon eggs, which are guarded by the fiercely protective mother dragon.

Harry is awarded forty points for his effort in the first task, and ties first place with Viktor Krum.
