Hello GSoC Mentors,

As you probably read by now we announced [0] that we will be running the Google Code-in [1]
for 13-17 pre-university students again this November - January 2014. The contest will begin
students on Monday, November 18th, 2013 [2].

Organizations will be able to apply to be one of the 10 mentoring organizations starting tomorrow,
 Wednesday, October 9th and the deadline to send in your org application will be Monday, October
28th (a week after the Mentor Summit). I will send another email to this list tomorrow morning
a link to the organization application. For some general tips about mentoring for GCI you
can check
out the GCI Mentor info [3].

We will have a session on Google Code-in during the first day of the Mentor Summit for people
learn more about the program and for previous mentors and org admins to give us their feedback
thoughts on the program.

Important Upcoming Dates:

** October 9, 2013 19:00 UTC - October 28, 2013 at 19:00 UTC - Orgs can go to
<> and the org admin can register and fill out the application
to be a
mentoring organization for Google Code-in 2013.

November 1, 2013 - The 10 Mentoring organizations are announced for Google Code-in 2013 and
the orgs
can start entering their tasks into the Google system (the tasks will not be viewable to students
until the contest opens on Nov 18).

November 18, 2013 17:00 UTC - Google Code-in 2013 contest opens for students.

January 6, 2014 17:00 UTC - Google Code-in 2013 student work ends.

January 8, 2014 17:00 UTC - Deadline for Mentors to evaluate student work

January 13, 2014 - Mentoring Organization deadline for submitting their 2 Grand Prize Winners

We hope you will help us spread the word about the Google Code-in contest so we can introduce
young developers to the wonderful world of open source.  If you will be going to any talks
conferences aimed at pre-university students in the next 5-6 weeks we would be happy to send
some cool GCI 2013 stickers. Please contact me directly at
<>if you would like stickers or if you have any questions
about applying
to be a mentoring organization.
