ABOUT THE OLPC (One Laptop Per Child):

One Laptop Per Child

Three Grand Prize Winners will be chosen to receive a OLPC notepad computer:

A real world laptop for real world change. The XO laptop was designed collaboratively by experts from academia and industry to combine innovations in technology and learning. We considered the need to weather extreme environmental conditions such as high heat and humidity, and to support easy field repair by children and local language support. As a result, the XO laptop is durable, functional, energy-efficient, responsive, and fun.

The XO is about the size of a textbook and lighter than a lunchbox. Thanks to its flexible design and “transformer” hinge, the laptop easily assumes any of several configurations: standard laptop use, e-book reading, and gaming. It has rounded edges, an integrated kid-sized handle, and (in most cases) a sealed, rubber-membrane keyboard.

Design was a priority from the start: the laptop could not be big, heavy, fragile, dull, or dangerous. The distinctive appearance both appeals to the intended users and discourages gray-market traffic. There is no mistaking what it is and for whom it is intended.

The XO is also designed for constant connectivity. A few children working together under a tree can connect to each other without any other hardware, and a class full of students can share collaborative activities with one another and see what their classmates are doing.



10 winners will receive a Sugar-on-a-stick

Sugar on a Stick

The award-winning Sugar Learning Platform promotes collaborative learning through Sugar Activities that encourage critical thinking, the heart of a quality education. Designed from the ground up especially for children, Sugar offers an alternative to traditional “office-desktop” software. Sugar on a Stick is a Fedora-based operating system featuring the award-winning and designed to fit on an ordinary USB thumbdrive.
The mission of Sugar Labs® is to produce, distribute, and support the use of the Sugar learning platform; it is a support base and gathering place for the community of educators and developers to create, extend, teach, and learn with the Sugar learning platform.

Sugar is based on the following principles:

  • everyone is a teacher and a learner;
  • humans by their nature are social beings;
  • humans by their nature are expressive;
  • you learn through doing; and
  • love is a better master than duty.


10 winners get a T-shirt 6.1 oz. 100% cottonTux Paint Artists T-Shirt

  • Country: USA

Different kinds of migration birds come to the back yard of our home in different seasons.  Some of them have burgundy feathers and some have red feathers.  Others have gray feathers with a little bulky body.  Among those migration birds, the ones with blue feathers are my favorite, because blue stands for “well-being” in the children’s story book “Blue Bird.”  Those blue birds look so pretty to me.  I wish they can come to our back yard everyday.

  • Title of the Drawing:  How the tuatara came to live on land
  • Country where the artist lives: New Zealand

Once there was a tuatara and a shark named Mango, both of them lived in the sea. The tuatara was bigger than the tuataras we have nowadays. It was gigantic.  If you had the smallest of medium-sized house, it would be about the size of your house. Now, the tuatara and Mango liked to eat people for their breakfast. One day the tuatara saw a waka with four fishermen in it, being rowed off the shore. So he reported it to Mango. Mango said “I don’t want to miss my breakfast.”  So the tuatara boldly went up under the waka and lifted his back so the waka tipped over to its side. Instantly, Mango gobbled up all four fishermen. After tuatara had sent the waka flying away, he realized that Mango had eaten all the fishermen. Tuatara said “You’ve eaten all the fishermen.”  “I’m sorry,” said Mango but there are some men up there on the shore. So the tuatara swam to the shore and as soon as the men saw tuatara coming, they ran away. Mango said “Come back tuatara,” but the tuatara replied “It’s much nicer up here. I think I’ll stay up here.”

So that’s how the tuatara came to live on land.
