The CANE Writing Contest is an annual event open to students taking Latin, Greek, or Classics in New England middle and high schools. Prizes are awarded to top contenders on the state and regional level.

We believe that the goals of the contest can best be served by requesting that the written project be the student’s own work. Hence, the student should not ask for any help in writing or correcting the project before submitting the final copy.

There are many other ways that “fake news” could be found in the literature of ancient Greece and Rome. For this paper topic, write a document that identifies the fake news in some ancient Greek or Roman source, and provide your own creative perspective on that. As seen below in the guidelines, this may take the form of a short story, poem, essay, or dialogue. Guidelines for Students (please note all these):

  • Your project may be a short story, poem, drama, or essay. 
  • Your project should not be hand-written. Please provide a typed document.
  • Maximum length: 700 words.
  • If you use any source materials for this project, you must provide a bibliography with specific references.

Your project will be judged holistically, based on how successfully you address the given topic, how imaginative and creative your idea is, and how well you use language to engage your reader. The winner receives their award at the annual meeting of CANE and reads the winning entry at the annual meeting banquet.
This competition has not yet listed it's awards.
