This first year of the prize we have selected Propertius' Carmen 3.21 for translation.
To participate in this year's contest, please submit your original translation and a title page in pdf to firstname.lastname@example.org. Place your full name, class, and major on a separate title page along with the edition you used for the Latin text. Your name should not appear anywhere on the translation itself. Several copies of the text with commentaries can be found on reserve in the UD library under Dr. Danze, though you are welcome to use a text from any edition not located in the library provided the edition is published.Translations will be accepted from October 1, 2017 - March 1, 2018. The prize of $250 and a book of poetry will be granted to the winning translator near the end of the Spring semester.
