>> 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
