Hi there! The Classical Cottage School Certamen is the day after Tomorrow! It will be fun! Everyone who is going please comment on this post afterward to say what you did and how it went!
 
 
 Certamen, the Latin word for Struggle, is a Great Latin Competition where student try to answer questions as fast as they can about Roman History, Roman Culture, Classical Mythology, and best of all...Latin Grammar! And when you get into the higher levels of Latin, you get to (Big and scary) Ancient Literature!! There are twenty Tossup questions in each round, each worth five points. If you signal in first, and answer the question right, your team gets a chance to answer a Bonus Question worth five points. At most Certamina (Plural of Certamen) There are three preliminary rounds, with three teams playing against each other at a time; and then the top three teams play against each other in a Finals Match. Certamen is a great way to test your knowledge and speed. I love it!
