The contest was open to students thirteen years of age or older who were then currently enrolled in high school (or equivalent pre-university or secondary school program).


Prizes offered by Google included a contest t-shirt and a participation certificate for completing at least one task and US$100 for every three tasks completed to a maximum of US$500. There was a grand prize of a trip to the Google headquarters for an award ceremony. Each participating open source project selected one contestant to receive the grand prize.
