Medusa Mythology Exam

The International Competition For Mythology Enthusiasts

Last year, the Medusa Mythology Exam moved the mailing address; this year, the Exam is moving the testing dates. 

The exam's theme:  "Heracles--the 1st Avenger"

The results packets will be sent out on January 15.  Please take into consideration

the time involved in sending a package from Northern Virginia to your school.

 Score results and the answer key will be posted once the results packages have been sent out.


PLEASE NOTE:  Last year's snow, coupled with mandatory state testing, was almost as deadly for Medusa as encountering Perseus.  In order to prevent further conflict, the new Medusa Mythology Exam dates will be the last week of November and the first two weeks of December (see dates given above).  Please check the registration form for registration information.
