Olympiad

« previous post | next post »

No, not the one in Beijing — the 6th International Olympiad in Linguistics is underway this week in Sunny Beach, Bulgaria (yes, really).  The Head Coach is Dragomir Radev, and the other coaches are Lori Levin, Amy Troyani, and Adam Hesterberg (who was last year's international winner).

This year, the North American trials had nearly 800 participants, and the two teams that won a trip to compete in Sunny Beach are:

Guy Tabachnick New York, NY Hunter College High School
Jeffrey Lim Arlington, MA Arlington High School
Josh Falk Pittsburgh, PA Shady Side Academy
Anand Natarajan San Jose, CA The Harker School
     
Jae-Kyu Lee Andover, MA Phillips Academy Andover
Rebecca Jacobs Encino, CA Harvard-Westlake
Hanzhi Zhu Shrewsbury, MA Shrewsbury High School
Morris Alper Palo Alto, CA Henry M. Gunn High School

You can see the first-round problems (here) and solutions (here) for this year's North American trials.
