A Challenge Shield is a Hogwarts crest used and used in the class challenges at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry set up for the students in their third year. Ten Challenge Shields were scattered around dungeons specifically set-up by teachers to test their students on the spells that comprised the third-year curriculum — if all ten Shields were successfully retrieved by the student, they would earn a visit to the Bean Bonus Room, as a treat.[1]
