The North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO, is an annual opportunity for high school and CEGEP students in the US and Canada to take a day off from school and try solving some toy linguistics problems at a university host site. McGill Linguistics led
online practice sessions leading up to this event and was proud to host 4 students from Montreal to compete in the open round of the competition on January 26th. One of these four qualified for the
invitational round! We hosted her this past Thursday, March 16th. The top four contestants from anglophone Canada will be invited to represent Canada at the International Linguistic Olympiad in Bansko, Bulgaria this summer.
