NATIONAL JUNIOR CLASSICAL LEAGUE

Ego vos hortari tantum possum ut amicitiam omnibus rebus humanis anteponatis.
I am able to urge you only that you place friendship before all human things.
Marcus Tullius Cicero, De Amicitia 17
The theme of the National Junior Classical League for 2017-2018


So what is National Convention?
Take a look at the 2015 National Junior Classical League Convention:

Seven Riverbend delegates joined nearly 1,200 other Latin students from around the country
at the 2017 National Junior Classical League Convention
on the campus of Troy University in Troy, Alabama, July 22-30. Ite, Ursi!
