MOUNT VERNON — Three Mount Vernon students — Austin Hulse, Zane Whisner and Brenna Mahn — earned medals for scoring high in the 2013 National Latin Exam.
The National Latin Exam is offered under the joint sponsorship of the American Classical League and the National Junior Classical League. More than 149,000 Latin students from all 50 states participated, as did students from 13 foreign countries, including Australia, Mexico, Belgium, Canada, China, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, Switzerland, United Kingdom and Zimbabwe. This year for the first time students from Bulgaria and Mozambique also took the NLE.
The exam consists of 40 multiple-choice questions including grammar, comprehension, mythology, life, history, derivatives and questions based on a short passage in Latin. Classic literature and literary devices are also covered for more advanced students.
