> Hello GCI mentors,
> We are pleased to announce Google Code-in (GCI) 2018 <http://g.co/gci>,
> the 9th consecutive year of our contest for pre-university students ages
> 13-17. Please be aware GCI will start about a month earlier this year
> than in previous years - the contest starts for students October 23rd!
> The GCI timeline, FAQs, Rules and flyers have been updated on the contest
> site <http://g.co/gci>.
> Organizations -- If you would like to apply for the 2018 program please
> start thinking about the tasks you would like students to work on and reach
> out to your community members to ask if they would like to be mentors for
> the program. *Organization applications open for GCI orgs *next week on
> Thursday, September 6th, and close less than 2 weeks later on Monday,
> September 17th. We will announce organizations on Tuesday, September 18th
> giving orgs 5 weeks to create their tasks before the contest begins on
> October 23rd.
> The major changes for GCI 2018 are:
> Orgs will evaluate the 20 students completing the most tasks with
> their org when deciding on finalists and winners
> Orgs will choose 6 finalists (instead of 5)
> We have renamed the User Interface category to Design
> Students will have to wait until Google reviews their Parental Consent
> form before they can claim their first task. This will slow things down but
> it is a requirement to be able to continue the program.
> No tasks asking for personal information about students will be
> allowed (this includes tasks asking for students to introduce themselves
> with info like what country they are from, or photos of the students, etc.).
> We are looking to continue the growth of this program and reach a record
> number of teenagers this year! Read more on today’s blog post
