Organization applications open on September 6, 2018 at 09:00 (Pacific Daylight Time)
The contest begins for students on October 23, 2018 at 09:00 (Pacific Daylight Time)!
What I need from the community as far as mentors go is:
An additional org admin that is NOT hands-off – you need to be willing to switch off with me so I don’t burn out. This is too much for one admin to do.
A good handful of mentors from various time zones
The only way this can happen is if we have at least 2 active Organization Admins and enough mentors for 24/7 coverage.
There are changes this year:
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.).
Please register your interest in the following poll:
- Yes, I will be Org Admin (this is a lot of work – you are also a mentor in this context)
- Yes, I want to be a Mentor
- No, not this year
