THE JULIA K. PETRINO AWARD

The Julia K. Petrino Award was established to honor middle school classical scholars who exemplify the dedication, discipline, and love of Classics exemplified by the young woman for whom the award is named. It was established by Julia K. Petrino's middle school Latin teacher, Lauri Dabbieri, as well as family and friends of Julia. The recipients are selected by a committee from a group of middle school students nominated by their teachers based on their performance on the National Mythology Exam and other activities in the field of classics. All teachers administering the National Mythology Exam to middle level students receive nomination forms for this award.
