New Hartford students win awards at annual Latin competition

June 3, 2023

On May 22, thirty New Hartford Central School District students studying Latin earned a total of 29 medals and 9 ribbons for their first, second and third place finishes at the 33rd Latinalia.

Latinalia is an annual Latin-day competition for students in grades 7-12 who are enrolled in Latin courses ranging from introductory to advanced placement levels. Students compete in a variety of activities that demonstrate their knowledge of Roman history, mythology, and the Latin language.

As a nod to the Paris 2024 Summer Olympic Games, the Latinalia theme was “Citius, Altus, Fortius,” the original Olympic motto in Latin which means “Faster, Higher, Stronger.”

This year’s competition was held at Le Moyne College and attended by approximately 200 students from New Hartford, Baldwinsville, East Syracuse-Minoa, Fayetteville-Manlius and Skaneateles school districts.
