OzClo Languages Competition

OzClo Languages Competition

On March 8, Darwin High School students participated in the regional round of the Australian Computational Linguistics Olympiad (OzClo).

The OzClo contest is held in two rounds.The First Round is a two hour competition and students had to work in teams of four on a range of language analysis problems. This year’s competition included decoding languages such as Warlpiri, Maori and Nepali.

This year 47 Darwin High School students volunteered their time to participate and either nominated as a team or as an individual and were placed in a team. 

The top three teams for each region then go on to the National Round, which has the same format as the First Round. The National Round is usually held in late March, with results announced around Easter.

Darwin High School congratulates all the students in took part!

Congratulations and good luck to students Nafi Mazid, Kate Hinchliffe, Michael Neill, and Daniel Youn on their outstanding test score. They will now participate in the OzClo National Final at CDU on March 29.
