NYCC Classical Club Contest: Oral Reading of Greek & Latin

  • Columbia University (602 Hamilton Hall) 116th Street & Broadway New York, NY, 10027 USA (map)

The Oral Reading of Greek and Latin Contests are hosted to encourage students to acquire both facility and enjoyment in the oral performance of works of Greek and Latin literature, all of which were originally created with the intention of their being performed orally and not read silently.

In order to be eligible for the contest you must be a student of Greek or Latin (elementary, secondary school, undergraduate, or graduate level). Contestants may compete for both the Greek and Latin prizes, or for either one. Memorization of the performed text remains optional and will not be a criterion in the evaluation of the contestants. 

All interested contestants should reach out to Erin McKenna at by April 1, 2017. Monetary prizes will be awarded.
