National rounds of linguistic olympiads

Здрасти!

If you're in secondary school you can participate in linguistic olympiads. It's a great way to get a first taste of what linguistics is like. Secondary school can also be called "high school", "gymnasie" "college" etc depending on where you live.

This years international contest takes place in Bulgaria - land of roses. I've been to the international olympiads as the team leader for Sweden since 2008, when it was actually also in Bulgaria. I highly recommend participating, you'll learn lots and meet great people!

Down below are some useful links, follow them to learn more about the arrangements of each country. These are the countries that I know are hosting contests this year, there's even more here.

Some of the countries have already had their first national rounds, but some have not yet. If you got any questions, contact the IOL here. If you're not a student of secondary school, spread this onwards so that it might reach students who have not yet heard about it. We in the IOL often get complaints from too old students wishing they had known about this earlier, so please help us spread the word.

Remember, participants do not all compete in English - they compete in the language of the national contest  - whichever that might be!
