[school-discuss] What kind of competitions can we have during Linux festival in school?


We are planning to hold a linux festival in my school. 

We will be inviting about 50 or so schools (that is over 500 students and 
teachers) and will demonstrate Linux for schools and home use.

Linux is not very popular in Indian schools since M$ has a lot of power in 
controlling the school syllabus making authorities (CBSE).

The students (so invited) will not have had any exposure to Linux.

We want to hold some competitions so that students can be shown the ease of 
use as well as usefulness of Linux.

The students (officially invited) will be from classes which have IT as part 
of their syllabus and thus will have had exposure to M$.

I will try and use Redflag Linux (as of now) on some of the machines since it 
seems to be closest to the existing (M$) environment.

Suggestions and experience narrations will be valuable.
