UNC's Department of Linguistics Played Host for NACLO 2024 Open Round

On January 25 the UNC Linguistics Department served as one of the host sites for the North American Computational Linguistics Open (NACLO) competition. This is an international competition for middle and high school students, challenging these students to solve linguistic puzzles and problems using logic and creative thinking. Fifteen students participated in the event, ranging from grade 6 to 12 coming from as far as Wilmington, but mostly from the Triangle greater area (Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, Apex, Southern Pines). . If any of our students from this round make it to the next level, they will compete in the Invitational Round on March 14.

From the NACLO website, “NACLO was started in 2006 in order to promote Computational Linguistics and Linguistics in general in North America.”
