Phaedrus Latin Composition Contest – 2012

Year three of the Phaedrus Latin Composition Contest is officially underway. Teachers can sign up now and incorporate the contest into their lesson plans for the year.
The Phaedrus Latin Composition Contest is for high school age students, typically 13 to 18 years old. Student entries will be due Feb. 1, 2011. 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 other deserving 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.

The Phaedrus Latin Composition Contest is administered entirely through the internet and allows willing teachers to take part in the nationwide judging. Thanks to the support of their sponsors, there is no cost to you or your students. Getting started is easy:

Note: Participants who registered last year must still reregister anew each year.
