The RTEMS Project is excited to be one of the 18
open source organizations participating in this
year's Google Code-in contest for 13-17 year old students.


The RTEMS Project has put together a list of tasks
which the students can undertake.  These tasks are
much smaller than Google Summer of Code projects
and generally take on the order of less than 5 days.


I encourage any RTEMS user to mentor in this program.
The tasks are very small and do not require deep
RTEMS knowledge. For example, last year, a number
of students took on tasks to add initial Wiki pages
for BSPs which did not have one.  This required adding
only the basic technical information about the board
with links to vendor documentation. Details on running
RTEMS on the board are well beyond the capabilities
of anyone without personal experience with the board.
Any RTEMS user could mentor that task and review the
content for formatting and thoroughness.

If you know students who would be candidates to participate, please 
encourage them.
