Overview of 2004 Illinois State Latin Tournament

Letter from the Chair / Important Announcement / Handbook / Application Form (coming)

unior High and High School students of registered members of the Illinois Classical Conference are eligible to participate in the State Latin Tournament. 

The District Exam of previous years has been eliminated.  Students will take a Qualifying Exam at their own schools instead of a regional location.

A maximum of eight Latin I students can be registered for the Qualifying Exam.  Five students per level may be registered for each of the other levels, namely Latin II, Latin III-Cicero, Latin III-Vergil, Latin IV, and Latin V. 

Students must compete at the level of Latin in which they are currently enrolled.

A registration fee of $5.00 per student is required to cover the cost of materials and test writers and graders.

Registrations must be submitted to the test coordinator no later than January 15, 2004.  Registrations postmarked after that date will not be accepted.

Exams will be administered by a school administrator, counselor, or other non-Latin teacher in the school.  The signature of the test administrator must accompany the completed exams.

All students from a given school will take the Qualifying Exam at the same time, on the same date.

On February 6 tests will be mailed directly to the administrator named on your registration sheet.  Please check with your administrator to be sure that tests have arrived at your school by February 13.  If your school has not received tests by that time, please call me immediately.

The Qualifying Exam will be administered during the week of March 1-6, 2004.  Contact the test coordinator immediately if your school is not in session that week.

Completed exams will be returned to the test coordinator postmarked no later than March 6, 2004. 

Any student who gets eighty percent of the Qualifying Exam correct will be invited to compete in the State Finals, hosted April 24, 2004 at Augustana College in Rock Island.
