Story
Tagline
Contest introducing teenagers to open source development.
Introduction

Google Code-in is a contest for pre-university students (e.g., high school and secondary school students ages 13-17) with the goal of encouraging young people to participate in open source. 

For many students the Google Code-in contest is their first introduction to open source development. For Google Code-in we work with open source organizations, each of whom has experience mentoring students in the Google Summer of Code program, to provide "bite sized" tasks for participating students to complete.

The tasks are grouped into the following categories:

  1. Code: Tasks related to writing or refactoring code
  2. Documentation/Training: Tasks related to creating/editing tasks and helping others learn more
  3. Outreach/Research: Tasks related to community management, outreach/marketing or studying problems and recommending solutions.
  4. Quality Assurance: Tasks related to testing and ensuring code is of high quality
  5. User Interface: Tasks related to user experience research or user interface design and interaction

Students earn one point for each task completed. Students will receive a digital certificate for completing one task and can earn a t-shirt when they complete three tasks. At the end of the contest each of the open source organizations will name two (2) grand prize winners for their organization based upon the students' body of work. The Grand Prize winners will receive a trip to Google's Mountain View, California, USA Headquarters for themselves and a parent or legal guardian for an award ceremony, an opportunity to meet with Google engineers, explore the Google campus and have a fun day in the San Francisco sun.

The Google Code-in contest site has more details on Frequently Asked Questions, Important Dates and the Contest Rules.
