At first sight, the competition element seems a bit weird approach for the
open source setting. Do you see a way how it can work out well?

(Google also has a code-in for HS students. Has numpy ever tried it? (all
the mentors I talked to at the last gsoc summit said it takes more time to
mentor than gsoc, but I guess maybe it's partly due to the fact that is
different, if we count all the pre-coding period efforts put into gsoc by
the wider community, it also adds up significantly)).
