Seventh grade students at Stella Schola Middle School in the Lake Washington School District recently participated in the National Latin Exam.

The one-hour test consisted of 40 questions ranging from Latin root words, verb conjugations and case endings (e.g. genitive, nominative, accusative, etc.) to questions regarding a multi-paragraph Latin story which students had to translate in their heads.

Other purple ribbon winners from Stella Schola were Hannah Campbell, Nathan Lees, Fortune Rodriguez, Cody Duoos, Emily Robinson, Patrick Blomgren, Talbot Bluechel, Amy Johnson, Eric Hsu, Zachary Sweetser, Katy Sjolund, Madeleine Suggs, Leila Cahn, Reilly Werth.
