WA Students Travel To Latin States

WA Students Travel To Latin States

The excitement was in the air as WA students arrived in Orlando for the 70th Annual State Latin Forum competition this past week. Our Latin students from seventh to eleventh grade were put to the test from Wednesday, April 3 to Saturday, April 6. WA joined over 1,200 Latin students from over 60 schools that qualified. Together, the crowd celebrated the Latin language and Roman culture. Students participated in various activities like impromptu art, an academic decathlon, and various academic tests.

These students worked really hard,” said Mrs. Jessica Bradshaw, Upper School Latin teacher. Anywhere from 200–500 students competed in a given category, and the following students placed in the top 20 of their event:
