Google kicks off the Google Code-in contest. "Students who're between 13-18 years and are currently enrolled in a pre-university school on Nov'22, 2010 are eligible to participate.
"Tasks are sorted according to organization, difficulty level, type of task, and point value. If you're considering participating, take a look at the tasks list and see what you're interested in claiming.
For successful completion of just one task you'll receive a t-shirt and certificate of participation. For every three tasks you complete you'll receive $100, up to a maximum of $500. Our 10 contestants with the most points at the end of the contest win the Grand Prize: an all-expenses paid trip with a family member to Google's Headquarters in Mountain View, California!" stated Google.
