Google sponsoring coder contest

Here's your chance to be Silicon Valley Chief Geek: Beat out thousands of the nation's programmers in a Google-run contest to solve coding problems on deadline.

The Google Code Jam 2003 is the Mountain View search company's second such annual competition. The official prize is cash -- $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second, $3,000 for third.
