OLPC SF 2011 Community Summit - Poster contest


Submit your posters!

The project poster contest is a new feature of the 2011 OLPC SF Community Summit! The posters are a simple size of 13" X 19", and completing the poster would be an excellent way to share your project and where help is needed. Your poster can win a nice prize and certificates will also be awarded.

Simply submit your project poster electronically before the summit and we will have them professionally printed and mounted on foam board. You are welcome to keep your mounted poster after the event.

Submitted posters will displayed in the hallway during the summit and when people are networking outside the conference rooms and during breaks, they can read about your project, your challenges, successes, and where you could use help. Your poster can cover your whole project or one specific area like content, training, infrastructure (power, connectivity, etc), and school server.

Winners will be announced during the Sunday luncheon period.
