+		So, where are you going to spend the summer<sup>*</sup>?
+		Again some exotic beach? Perhaps this year on Monkey Island<sup>TM</sup>? 
+	</p>
+	<p>
+		Well if you are a
+		<a href="http://code.google.com/opensource/gsoc/2008/faqs.html#0.1_student_eligibility">student</a>
+		and want to make a buck this summer (more accurately $4500 US of them), Google is organizing the absolute
+		Open Source recruitment drive, also known as the
+		<a href="http://code.google.com/soc/2008/">Google Summer of Code</a>!
+		The program is designed to create an incentive for students to participate in Open Source projects,
+		by providing guidance and economic support.
+		What's more, your favorite project <a href="http://www.scummvm.org/">ScummVM</a> is proud to be participating!
+	</p>
+	<p>
+		Think about it.
+		Have you ever thought about contributing to a large Open Source project like ScummVM but were intimidated to do so?
+		With the Summer of Code opportunity, you can put your skills at work under close cooperation with our mentors.
+		They'll help you ease in the team, plan the task ahead of time with you and guide you all along.
+	</p>
+	<p>
+		To get things started, you have to pitch us your idea.
+		Take a look at our <a href="http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/OpenTasks">Open Tasks</a> page for some suggestions.
+		Then visit the <a href="http://code.google.com/soc/2008/">Google Summer of Code</a> website,
+		read up on the <a href="http://code.google.com/opensource/gsoc/2008/faqs.html">FAQ</a> and
+		check out the 
+		<a href="http://code.google.com/opensource/gsoc/2008/faqs.html#0.1_student_apply">application guide</a>.
+	</p>
+	<p>
+		Now, hurry up! You've got until <b>March 31</b>, so get cracking!

+		<sup>*</sup>: Summer in the northern hemisphere definition :-)
