Certamen is a Jeopardy-style quiz game dedicated to knowledge in ancient Classical mythology, history, literature, culture, and language. Students compete in teams of 4 to buzz in and answer questions. Certamen is a big part of the Junior Classical League, with various tournaments hosted at schools, at State Convention, and even at Nationals. Massachusetts has a history of strong Certamen teams, who continue to play extremely well at National championships. Below are the list of tournaments and their dates, as well as practice questions for teams interested in starting a Certamen team or who wish to have questions to practice with.
