​ 2016 CPL Award for Outstanding Promotional Activity in the Schools

At the high school level, the CPL recognizes Nicoletta Villa-Sella (Linsly School) for organizing an attractive program (in the true sense) for the West Virginia Junior Classical League convention. The event will be held in Morgantown (WV) and will include various contests and reenactments, including a Roman wedding, and, of course, a Roman dinner. Another highlight will be a talk by Victoria and Thomas Jordan with the title: "Rome in the 23rd Century: Roman History and Mythology in the Star Trek."

At the college/university level, the CPL recognizes Cynthia White (University of Arizona) for organizing a large-scale K-12 "bridge" outreach in conjunction with the joint Classics Department and University of Arizona Art Museum exhibit entitled "Rome: The Legacy of an Eternal City" (September 2015 - January 2016). The museum exhibit attracted over 2,000 K-12 viewers from the Tuscon-Phoenix communities, who came at the invitation of the Classics department for a day of activities. In addition, a workshop for K-12 teachers offered also professional development credit and / or certificate. Cynthia's initiative of inviting K-12 students and teachers for a day of Classics related activities at the University of Arizona is an outstanding example of bridging the university and the K-12 connections.
