Subject: Announcing Google Code-in

   Hi everyone,

   We*re pleased to announce that we are planning to run the Google Code-in
   contest starting this November. This is a contest modelled on the success
   of our pilot program the Google Highly Open Participation Contest that was
   run in 2007-08. We will again be giving 13-18 year old students around the
   world an opportunity to get involved with open source projects doing tasks
   ranging from documentation to outreach to coding programs. 

   We*re looking forward to a fun contest this year and hope you*ll consider
   participating yourself if you are eligible or spread the word to friends,
   family, and colleagues about the program. Please check out the timeline
   [0] for more details on the program.

   We encourage you to join the Google Code-in contest discussion list [1]
   and announcement list [2].

   Please see our blog post [3] for further details and contact me directly
   if you have specific questions that aren*t answered in the FAQs [4].
