Its like a mini-GSoC for Junior High/High School students... would

Hi everyone,

We’re pleased to announce that we are planning to run the Google
Code-in contest starting this November. This is a contest modelled on
the success of our pilot program the Google Highly Open Participation
Contest that was run in 2007-08. We will again be giving 13-18 year
old students around the world an opportunity to get involved with open
source projects doing tasks ranging from documentation to outreach to
coding programs.

We’re looking forward to a fun contest this year and hope you’ll
consider participating yourself if you are eligible or spread the word
to friends, family, and colleagues about the program. Please check out
the timeline [0] for more details on the program.

This year we will also be accepting applications for open source
organizations to become mentoring organizations. There will be a
separate email thread to this list inviting you to apply to be a
mentoring organization on Monday, 18 October. Please take some time to
discuss with your respective organizations about whether you feel you
have the time and mentor capacity to participate this year.

We’re also looking for volunteers to help test the Google Code-in code
on Melange. Please see Sverre’s original email [1] for further

We encourage you to join the Google Code-in contest discussion list
[2] and announcement list [3].

Please see our blog post [4] for further details and contact me
directly if you have specific questions that aren’t answered in the
FAQs [5].
