Illustrations are encouraged but not required for all entries. If illustrations are not present, the grammar/creativity categories will be weighed more heavily.
All entries must be electronic - not handwritten - with a maximum of 250 words.
Only one entry is allowed per student.
Entries are limited to 5 per level/category per school.
Each entry will be graded against the same level and category (i.e. novice poems v. novice poem; advanced comics v. advanced comics).
Due to the lack of nuance provided by online sources (ex: William Whitaker's Words, latdict.com), students are not permitted to use online dictionaries; print dictionaries are encouraged. If an online dictionary must be used, https://www.latinitium.com/smithhall is recommended.
Teachers are asked to check entries for plagiarism before submitting.
Submissions that fail to comply with the rules will be disqualified.
