The NACLO (North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad) is a competition for middle and high school students (grades 6 to 12) which presents problems involving language and logic. All problems are written and no prior background in linguistics or computer science is necessary. The problems are fun puzzles that can be solved by analytical reasoning.
