									A Competition to promote Harmony throughout Europe and the Countries of the World

                             CONCOURS CICERO
                            CICERO COMPETITION
                             CONCURSO CICERO
                             CONCORSO CICERO
The name CICERO is an acronym in Latin, as you can see above.
CICERO is enjoyed by students of Classics from Edinburgh through Europe to Tunis;
from Australia to the Caribbean!

This innovative competition is organised by teachers of Classical subjects around the
world for their 6th form students, illustrating that a study of our Classical
heritage provides a worthwhile and valid reason for young people to interact with
each other across their national boundaries.

During the week beginning Saturday 26th March 2011 students in different
countries are taking part in the 5th annual CICERO competition with live video-
conferencing when possible, or by an exchange of videos and photos.
