UW_WPD_2010_smallest_raisedThe Ubuntu Women Project have announced an exciting new competition as part of the World Play day initiative on May 28th ” with a shiny new netbook up for grabs!

"We would love to have a collection of examples of young girls (toddlers through to 12 years old) playing with — and loving, and being encouraged to pursue — Ubuntu. This would allow parents of girls to demonstrate that it really is ok to be intrigued by the shiny screens, blinking lights, tappity-tap of keyboards, and faint whirs of computer fans." ~ Ubuntu Women Wiki

All you need to do join in the celebratory message and potentially nab yourself that computer is take/submit a photo of your little sister, baby niece or young daughter (toddlers through 12 years old) “…playing with and loving Ubuntu.”
