It’s that time of year again! The Young Classicist Awards 2022 is now open for entries! The Young Classicist Awards is an innovative competition open to all second-level students who are interested in Classics. Students (either as individuals or as part of a group) are encouraged to present a project on any aspect of Classics, including Ancient Greek and Latin, and to be as innovative in their approach as possible! Past projects have included videos, PowerPoints, crafts (such as posters or paintings), performances (such as singing or recitation), Minecraft and diary entries! For some inspiration, you can check out the winning projects from 2021 here. Please note that the 2022 iteration of the competition will be held online and all entries must be submitted digitally.
The awards categories are as follows:
Robin Miller Award – Senior. This award is for senior competitors, from 4th to 6th year.
Dionysus Award – Junior. This award is for junior competitors, from 1st to 3rd year.
Athena Award. This is open to all students, both Senior and Junior, and it encourages students to connect their project to one of the UN sustainable development goals.
Palma Lingua Antiqua. This award is open to all students who have Ancient Greek and/or Latin as a substantial part of their project.
The deadline for entries is 8 April 2022, and all entries must be submitted digitally. Full details on entry requirements and dates, past winners and contact information can be found on the Young Classicist Awards webpage or in the documents below.
