Latin is alive in the Breeze

latin-competition  Gulf Breeze High School hosted the annual Region One Latin Forum for the 21st year. Competing schools included Escambia High, Niceville High, Rocky Bayou High, and Gulf Breeze High, as well as Arnold High and Senior Classical Conversations. Pine Forest also attended.

Students competed in four main categories: Academia, Arts/Creatives, Olympia, and Certamen. Academic tests include Classical Art, Derivatives, Vocabulary, Grammar, Reading Comprehension, Mythology, and History of the Empire. Creative options include dramatic interpretations, costumes, 2- and 3-D art, and computer programs. The Olympia is modeled after the original Olympics, with events such as tug-of-war, 100 metre dash, the mile run, and human chariot. Certamen is a Latin Quiz Bowl, where teams of up to four students are asked questions ranging from religion and mythology to grammar and customs.

Gulf Breeze had several students place in Academia: Allison Linkous was first in Level One Mythology, and Will Sawarynski second in Advanced Derivatives, Jasmaine Roberge placed third in Greek
