Gaiaware now Gaia Ajax widgets is running a Gaia Programming Contest, which is a Gaia’s Green Initiative contest about creating a piece of software that will serve as a portal for solving the Earth's major problems.

All entries must be available for being put out as GPL software at either SourceForge.net or some similar Open Source hosting service. The software also must use Gaia Ajax Widgets in one form or another. Also no Close Source dependencies can be used which means that the end product must be compilable on Mono.
