In Suzanne Collins' trilogy "The Hunger Games", each of the 12 current districts produce goods to send to the Capitol. Additionally, each district must send two tributes (or sacrifices), a male and a female, to the Hunger Games from a reaping ceremony. In the 74th Hunger Games, each of the tributes were;

- District 1 (specialises in the production of luxury goods) Marvel and Glimmer.

- District 2 (specialises in the production of weaponry) Cato and Clove.

- District 3 (specialises in the production of electronics) unknown tributes, however the male tribute did re-activate the mines near the cornucopia.

- District 4 (specialises in the production of fishing) unknown tributes, however the male tribute was one of the original eleven to die in the inital bloodbath.

- District 5 (specialises in the production of electricity) Foxface and unknown male tribute (however, he was one of the original eleven to die in the inital bloodbath).

- District 6 (specialises in transportation) unknown tributes, however they both died in the first day.

- District 7 (specialises in the production of lumber and paper) unknown tributes, however Johanna Mason becomes an important character later in the trilogy (she is a previous victor of the Games).

- District 8 (specialises in the production of textiles) unknown tributes, except that the male tribute from District 8 died at the Cornucopia, and the female tribute was attacked on the first night.

- District 9 (specialises in the production of grain) unknown tributes, but both were killed at the initial bloodbath.

- District 10 (specialises in the production of livestock) unknown tributes, except it was mentioned the boy had a crippled leg.

- District 11 (specialises in the production of agriculture) Thresh and Rue.

- District 12 (specialises in the production of coal and mining) Katniss and Peeta.

- District 13 (specialises in nuclear technology and mining graphite) did not participate in the 74th Hunger Games as it was said to be destroyed by the Capitol.

What an excellent answer from wanderista. I do not have much to add to the conversation, but I will list the tributes from each District as well as the specialty of each District as found in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Males are designated with an (M) and of course the females are designated with an (F).

  • District 1 (luxury goods) Glimmer (F) and Marvel (M)
  • District 2 (weaponry) Clove (F) and Cato (M)
  • District 3 (electronics) unnamed tribute (F) killed 29 seconds into the Games and unnamed tribute (M) re-activated the mines near the cornucopia
  • District 4 (fishing) unnamed tribute (F) killed 17 minutes and 23 seconds into the Games and unnamed tribute (M) killed 1 minute 18 seconds into the Games
  • District 5 (electricity) Foxface (F) and unnamed tribute (M) killed in initial bloodbath
  • District 6 transportation) unnamed tribute (F) and unnamed tribute (M) both killed in initial bloodbath
  • District 7 (lumber and paper) unnamed tribute (F) and unnamed tribute (M) both killed in initial bloodbath
  • District 8 (textiles) unnamed tribute (F) killed on day 2 and unnamed tribute (M) killed in the initial bloodbath
  • District 9 (grain) unnamed tribute (F) killed in the initial bloodbath and unnamed tribute (M) first person killed on day 1
  • District 10 (livestock) unnamed tribute (F) killed in the initial bloodbath and unnamed tribute (M) killed on day 8
  • unknown tributes, except it was mentioned the boy had a crippled leg.
  • District 12 (coal and mining) Katniss Everdeen (F) and Peeta Mallark (M) win the Games

District 13 no longer participates in the Hunger Games because it has been destroyed as a warning to any other Districts about what happens if they rebel against the Capitol:

Whatever words they [the Capitol/government] use, the real message is clear. "Look how we take your children and sacrifice them and there's nothing you can do. If you lift a finger, we will destroy every last one of you. Just as we did in District Thirteen."
