Google's latest open-source contest/project, Google Code-In, encourages those young and bright-minded individuals in Jr. High, High School, or some other Pre-University educational institution to participate for a chance at earning some cash (up to $500) and a chance to be 1 of 10 grand prize winners that receive a trip to Google's California Headquarters to be given an award in Google's very own award's ceremony!
The best part is, if you participate and complete tasks required to qualify for being a grand prize winner, you are guaranteed a T-Shirt and cash prize of up to $500! (depending upon your level of involvement, and assuming your tasks meet their requirements)
