Entries are expected from all over the country, and will be judged in three categories: ages 5-9, 10-12, and 13-18. Only original work will be accepted, and must be received by the competition deadline, 31 May 2000.

The three winning students will have their work published on the cover of Computers in New Zealand Schools and receive $100 each. Winning students' schools each receive an Iomega Zip drive and disks.
