Opportunities!! Content Development in IT

This' an opportunity for the youths to develop apps for agricultural content.

This Community Grants Programme is open to the creativity and imagination of the Internet Society Community. The only parameters of the Program are the Criteria. The selection Committee favours Projects that strengthen and support the health of the Internet as well as Projects that further support Internet Society's mission, goals, and Strategic Initiatives. In an attempt to address some applicants' difficulty in finding focus for project ideas, the Internet Society provides specific Focus Areas that directly or indirectly address key ISOC strategic goals. The current, preferred Focus Areas for project applications are:
·         IPv6
·         Local content creation (encouraging demand for and use of the Internet for a specific community)
·         Encouraging the multi-stakeholder approach to technical and policy issues
·         Interconnection and traffic exchange

The United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU) today invited young innovators in digital and other fields to enter a global competition in which 60 winners will be invited to Geneva in October to pitch their novel ideas at a leading forum.
Three entrants from each of two categories judged to have the best all-round concepts by an online vote of delegates attending the 24-27 October ITU Telecom World 2011, an event attended by governments, industry leaders and regulators, will share prize money totalling over 50,000 Swiss francs (about $65,570) to help them realize their dreams.
