Several universities may be unable to serve as host sites for NACLO 2021 if COVID-19 restrictions permitting visitors onto their campuses are in effect in January 2021.  Alternatively, some university sites may be able to host NACLO 2021 but may have to limit participation numbers to ensure social distancing requirements. Participants who register to participate in NACLO 2021 at a university site must, therefore, have one of the following alternative arrangements in place as a back-up plan.

Option 1: NACLO at your school

If a student attends a school that is open in January/March 2021, a student may participate in NACLO at their school. If their school is already a confirmed NACLO site, students must confirm with their teacher or school administrators that NACLO will indeed proceed in person. If the school is not yet a registered NACLO site, the school must become a site. The process for becoming a NACLO site is detailed in the NACLO 2021 Coordinator Handbook (section entitled “High School Sites”).

Option 2: NACLO at home

Students will have the option to participate in the open round of NACLO 2021 from home by registering for the AT-HOME site, one of the options available in the University Sites category. Participants registering for this site must have internet access for the duration of the competition in order to receive the puzzles directly from the NACLO organizing committee and print them at home,  communicate with the jury if needed, and enter their puzzle answers online using Google Forms.
