The North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO) is a day-long contest for high school age participants. The contest contains challenging, puzzle-like problems that focus on aptitude for linguistic analysis and logical and computational thinking.

Please Read the Handbook found at

Goals of NACLO:

  • Increase the size and diversity of the pool of future scientists in our field.
  • Identify talented high school students and help them get the back-ground that they need for higher education in HLT and linguistic fields.
  • Get the scientific study of language into high school curricula

NACLO 2013:

Over the last two years close to 100 high schools and more than 30

universities in the United States and Canada hosted more than 1000

students annually in this competition.
