Declamation

Latin Day Declamation Contest
Declamation, a long-lived Latin Day tradition, returns with a few changes to the rules.
There will be no specifically designated declamation passages at Latin Day per level.  Instead, students may prepare to recite from memory any passage used for the COLT Poetry Contest. Students must bring 5 copies of their passage for the judges’ reference. Copies of the scanned poetry can be found from the below links.  Remember that placing in the top 3 in declamation will accrue points for the school toward the Nancy Lister Award.
Students will once again be competing in Lower and Upper levels. Lower Declamation will consist of Latin I and II students, while upper declamation will consist of Latin III+ students. While you may choose any poem, please remember, passage length and difficulty will be considered as part of contest judging.
The below links are arranged into levels suggested by COLT.

    1. Hi Kelly. This year we’re going to open it up to more than just a passage or two. We’ve been discussing either 1) any of the passages available for the COLT Declamation contest or 2) any passage of the student’s choosing. I should be posting about it in the coming week. -Drew
