Google Highly Open Participation Contest
Plone is one of the projects selected to take part in the Google Highly Opened Participation Context.
The contest is open to High School students (roughly aged 13-18). Taking place over a period of eight weeks, the programme lets students claim tasks designed to get them involved in open source projects.
Following on from our previous Google Summer of Code involvement, Plone is one of only ten projects selected to be part of this inaugural competition.
The contest is already open, and a few students have claimed tasks. Alexander Limi and I have been involved in setting up Plone's entry, but we could use some help in dealing with student responses. If you're interested in helping out, please drop me a line or leave a comment here. Specifically, we need people to keep an eye on the issue list and to channel students' responses to the mailing list or the Collective or wherever they need to go.
We have about 40 tasks open to students now, with around ten claimed. We have scope to add more tasks, so if you have a good idea, please let us know and we can add it!
