The North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO) is a contest for U.S./Canadian high school and middle school students in which contestants compete by solving compelling and creative puzzles in linguistics and computational linguistics. Winners of NACLO are eligible to compete in the International Linguistics Olympiad (IOL), one of twelve international high school science Olympiads. No prior knowledge of linguistics or second languages is necessary.
NACLO consists of two rounds. The first round is open to all interested students. Top scorers in the first round are invited to compete in the second round.
