Latin student Helena Huang, Gr. 8, was announced the winner of last year’s Ancient Coins for Education (ACE) fall essay contest. Every year Gr. 8 Latin students participate in the ACE program, the goal of which is to encourage learning about the classical world through the use of primary sources. This is achieved not only by providing ancient coins for the students to identify but through essay contests held throughout the year. Huang wrote her essay on the Roman emperor Gallienus, and she noted she is fascinated by “the historical [and] cultural information you can obtain from the designs and inscriptions on each side [of the coins].” As recognition for her achievement, Huang recently received both a coin and a certificate.
