Wyoming City Schools had an incredible showing at this year's Latin Convention! Four Wyoming High School students and four Wyoming Middle School students attended and every student earned an award in at least one of the contests they entered.
At the convention, students have opportunities to compete in a variety of categories ranging from traditional academic focused contests, to graphic arts, crafts (such as textiles and game design), creative and performing arts, and more. Every contest is designed to encourage students to connect their knowledge of the ancient world with the skills and talents they have outside of the Latin classroom.
"Students also spend time with guest speakers from the strong Classics programs in Ohio's universities and colleges, both to learn more about topics that interest them and to see how professional Classicists use interdisciplinary approaches to expand our knowledge of the past and modern worlds," said Latin Teacher Todd Wegenhart.
