Latinitas Points

The Latinitas Points System

The Latinitas Award honors commitment and excellence in Latin through the Duluth High School Junior Classical League (DHS JCL).  DHS JCL members compete with each other within each level of Latin to earn the most points through participation, competition, and volunteerism.
