CERTAMEN
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.

Massachusetts has a history of strong Certamen teams, who continue to play extremely well at National championships.
