This group exists to let us organize for Drupal's application as a mentoring organization for Google's Code-in contest. If Drupal is accepted as a mentoring organization, this group will also serve as a working group for monitoring Drupal's participation in the contest.
- The goal of Code-in is to get students interested and involved in open source, not to get free child labour. ;) The tasks should reflect that. Try and form your tasks around ideas that are fun, interesting, of high importance for the project, and/or would look great on a college application.
Google Code-in is a contest sponsored by Google for helping engage 13-17 year old high school students in open source projects. Drupal is applying as a mentoring organization, and in order to do that, we need a list of tasks in five categories (Code, Documentation/Training, Outreach/Research, Quality Assurance, and User Interface) lined up for participants to start working on.Read more
Note: the application below is a work-in-progress. Please feel free to improve it by editing this wiki page. Thanks!
Google Code-in is approaching. Organization application time-frame opens next Monday (22th Oct 2012) and closes two weeks later. Application is our main focus at the moment and that's why we need people that are willing to help with that. Code-in is focused on pre-university students, which are definitely future of our community. If you have few hours to contribute and you want to help attracting young people to join our community, please contact me or leave a comment.

Google code-in 2001 was announced. Will Drupal apply also this year?
What is the procedure? Should we first prepare application or start collecting proposals first? I'm willing to help with this, since I was GSoC 2011 student and I'l like to help younger open source enthusiasts to involve in Drupal.
This is a wiki page to highlight ways that folks can contribute to GCI. Please update with any ones I missed.
What about a documentation or screen-cast about how to build a standard web site without writing a single line of code. Maybe helps a lot for a new comers in the drupal verse.
