    Prof. Cartledge will announce the prizewinners for this year’s CICERO competition. The list will be posted on the UK page of http://www.ciceroconcordia.com later in the day. Participating teachers can download and print a Diploma for every student who took part. It is great to see how many schools and areas of the UK are represented and I am particularly pleased that competitors from all four UK venues have a share in the first and second prizes.
