Ideas to help Drupal promote GSoC/GCI

From GCI Task
"Document 5 ideas to help Drupal promote GSoC/GCI"

  1. Promote on Drupal landing page. Maybe in the monthly post. I see there is a post like "What’s new on Drupal.org? - October 2016". So before the contest start about 1-3 months, include the GSoC/GCI news in the post.

  2. Tweet about GSoC/GCI in Drupal official Twitter. Use GSoC/GCI hashtag.

  3. Write interesting stories about finalists from previous years.

  4. Promote GSoC/GCI in Drupal developer documentation. If they have any tasks for students, please add them to GSoC/GCI.

Google Code-in 2015 blogs

Hi,
In this discussion, I suggest GCI 2015 participants share links to their blogs, where they're writing about Drupal because there are many tasks wich require blogging. As for me, I'm very interested in reading a really good post about Drupal.

It's my blog:http://awesomedrupal.blogspot.ru/. Read, discuss and share it with your friends! :)

Also, I have an idea to create a site (with Drupal, of course) wich will collect and aggregate blog post of GCI 2015 participants, news about GCI and another stuff that related to it. What do you think about it?

There are also JPG files included to view the flyers. I couldn't make up my mind on which background color to use so I've posted all three pictures.

One of my Google Code In tasks has been to teach a group of friends or school mates the basics of installing Drupal. I chose this because I regularly attend my school's Student Technology and Coding Club, and I couldn't imagine a better audience in my high school to teach things like this to.

"Drupal Gift Bag" for winning GCI students

As a community, Drupal should truly give back to our winning GCI students. The students spend a lot of time on GCI and it is not easy work. GSoC students are paid to work, but GCI students compete in a contest to win a trip to Google with no money. We have previously discussed providing our two winning GCI students with some type of "Drupal Gift Bag" that would include items such as t-shirts, stickers, books, magazines, etc. Let's move forward and make this happen for our 2014 winners.
