The first group of students created Roman cultural and historical projects, such as jewelry, the Circus Maximus, a ballista, mosaics, and a Roman shield, or scutum (just to name a few of the items made). They created a physical recreation from Roman times as a quarter project for Latin class. The best projects were then submitted to the competition at the Baldwin school in categories that included mosaics, reconstructions, drawings, paintings, and jewelry. The second group of students won academic awards for earning the 5 top scores on a test out of 85 Latin students here at HMS.
