Latin Fun Site!

Go NJCL! NJCL, the National Junior Classical League is a wonderful organization for Latin students around the country! Each summer, the NJCL holds a convention where delegates may participate in many competitions, from tests to costume to Latin Oratory to Certamen! See for yourself at jcl.org. JCL activities offer great opportunities for meeting new people and learning more Classics. The Picture is of one of the Virginia Junior Classical League's Spirit Banners at the NJCL Convention at UC Davis, CA, July 2009. Virginia won the overall Spirit Award. That means that we cheered loud and crazily, had awesome costumes, and were Really Spirited!
Unfortunately, you have to be in seventh grade or higher to participate in the Convention, but I sneaked in  because I was twelve already in July!!! Hooray! The Convention is rather intimidating at first, especially because you have to stay up for the MANDATORY meetings that end at midnight, and Jet lag doesn't help much. :( But it is Awesome All the Same!
