| Annual AMICI Translation Contest
AMICI proudly announces its annual Latin Translation Contests for high school students in Iowa. Once again there will be three test levels: one for students in Latin I, another for those in Latin II, and a third for those in Latin III and above. Each test will consist of a single prose Latin passage to be translated by the student. The passage will be approximately seventy-five words long, and difficult or unusual words will be glossed. The students will have 45 minutes to complete their translation. The contest should be administered by someone other than the Latin instructor. The translations will be sent to Cindy Smith at Loras College for grading. Certificates will be awarded for first and second place for each high school. In addition, a $50.00 prize will be awarded to the best translation in the state in each category.
To enter your students in this contest, please fill out the application form below by February 28. Remember to indicate the number of students who will be participating. The contest will be administered in March. Results will be mailed to the Latin teacher in April. Teachers who wish to participate must be members of AMICI.Application for AMICI Latin Translation Contest
