Latin Composition Contest!

New Saint Andrews College has established a nationwide Latin composition contest as a tool for Latin teachers – both in the classroom and home schools –  to advance student achievement in Latin.

The Phaedrus Latin Composition Contest, which will be administered entirely through the internet, provides tips for Latin teachers on how to incorporate the contest into their lesson plans and allows willing teachers to take part in the nationwide judging. Teachers are encouraged to sign up now as a participating instructor at Student entries will be due March 1, 2010. There is no charge to participate.

Students must be 15 to 18 years old and may only submit one entry per year. A top prize of $500 will be awarded for first place. Other cash prizes will be given to the second- and third-place winners, along with honorable mention recognition for the top 20 percent of entries.

Participating students will submit a 100- to 200-word original fable in Latin, along with an English translation of the submitted piece. Compositions will be graded based on the student’s ability to accurately use Latin vocabulary and forms of speech, the student’s creativity in subject matter and writing style.
