To: Tux Paint <tuxpaint-devel@lists.sourceforge.net>, Tux Paint Users <tuxpaint-users@lists.sourceforge.net>



The Tux Paint project, as part of the larger Tux4Kids organization,
has taken place in Google's "Summer of Code" program for the past
few years.

The program below, like their "Highly Open Participation" (GHOP),
which was a way to get high school students involved in open source
projects.  GSOC is for programming projects, while GHOP was for other
aspects (documentation, art, etc.)  It seems that this new "Code-In"
program is like the two programs combined (programming projects for
high schoolers).

I haven't looked into it closely, but I'm betting Tux Paint and
the other Tux4Kids projects would benefit from participating.
In any case, there might folks out here who are interested to
know about this outside of Tux4Kids' involvement.  (e.g., educators,
parents who have older kids, etc.)

Enjoy & have a nice weekend!

  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.

  We encourage you to join the Google Code-in contest discussion list [1]
  and announcement list [2].

  Please see our blog post [3] for further details and contact me directly
  if you have specific questions that aren*t answered in the FAQs [4].
