The National Mythology Exam is a rigorous test that requires students to have a strong understanding of myths, Roman names for mythological figures and general knowledge about ancient beginnings.

The competition is sponsored by Excellence Through Classics, a standing committee of the American Classical League, and is dedicated to promoting classics programs at the elementary and middle school levels. The exam is given to more than 10,000 students in approximately 400 schools throughout the United States and in several foreign countries.

Heidi Mohagen is the OIS Challenge teacher.
