Google Highly Open Participation Contest

The Google Highly Open Participation Contest, Google's first contest to introduce pre-university students to the many contributions that make open source software development possible, concluded on February 4, 2008. We had nearly 400 students worldwide to produce a variety of open source code, documentation, training materials and user experience research for the ten participating organizations listed here. You can check out actual work submitted by student contestants by clicking on the results link next to a project's name on the right.
