Registrations open for the Google India Code to Learn Contest

Registrations open for the Google India

A few weeks ago we launched the Google India Code to Learn contest to make computer programming fun and easy to learn for school students. The contest involves working with Scratch - a programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab.

Registrations are still open and we invite school students from classes 5 to 10 from all over India to explore Scratch and develop projects on it. Students in classes 9 and 10 can develop their projects in Scratch but are also welcome to choose Java or C++. Project submissions will begin from 5-Aug-2013. Google's engineers shall judge the project submissions. There are some cool prizes to be won at the end of the contest.

To learn more and register, please visit the contest website.

Note: The Contest is open to Indian resident students in Standards 5 to 10 of any school in India, who have obtained their parents' and/or legal guardians' permission to enter and whose parents and/or legal guardians consent.

Eligibility:

Google will accept students enrolled in a school in India in the following three categories*

Classes 5 & 6
Classes 7 & 8
Classes 9 & 10

Sometimes students are between classes in the summer months. In that case we will consider the class the student will be in as on 15-July-2013.

Students will have to be registered by their parents or legal guardians.

* Employees, interns, contractors, and official office-holders, as well as their immediate families, of Google, its affiliates, and any representatives or agencies of Google or other persons professionally connected with the Contest are not eligible to participate.
