Google Code-in is a contest introducing 13-17 year old pre-university students to open source software development. The web site is

https://codein.withgoogle.com/

The Google Code-in contest is open for pre-university students and for 2018 runs from October 23 to December 12. Students choose tasks they wish to work on from a range of categories. Upon successful completion of tasks, eligible students can earn prizes (digital certificates, t-shirts, hoodies) and grand prize winners will receive a trip to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California for themselves and a parent or legal guardian.

Mentoring for RTEMS is a rewarding experience. You get to meet and interact with young smart students who want to learn. Mentors do not need to be RTEMS developers, anyone from the community can mentor.

==Instructions for Repeatable Tasks==

The following tasks can either be done multiple times by different students (e.g. Hello World) or repeated on a different set of input (e.g. Investigate a Ticket or Add Doxygen Header).

TODO: Rename pages per GCI current task types. Current categories are at https://developers.google.com/open-source/gci/resources/example-tasks.

    Mentors: Task planning is at GCI/TaskPlan. Please put ideas there.
