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  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
We’re also looking for volunteers to help test the Google Code-in code on
Melange. Please see Sverre’s original email  for further details.
We encourage you to join the Google Code-in contest discussion list  and
announcement list .
Please see our blog post  for further details and contact me directly if you
have specific questions that aren’t answered in the FAQs .
