NACLO, the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad is a fun and educational contest for students in grades 6-12 in which you will solve linguistics problems from a variety of languages (natural and artificial). No prior knowledge of linguistics or any particular language is required. All you need to bring is your curiosity and enthusiasm!
As we did last year, McGill will be hosting NACLO this year. The first round of the contest will take place on Thursday, January 31, from 10am to 1pm at McGill University (Sign in starting 9.15am, room to be announced). Students who perform well on the first round will be invited back for a second round, to take place on March 13. The winners of the invitational round will be eligible to represent North America at International Linguistics Olympiad. More information about NACLO can be found at at the general website for NACLO or download the 2013 handbook.
