The contest deadline is March 28th.

This is an opportunity to win prize money for working on free software. It's been going for a couple of days already, but the deadline isn't until Sunday, March 28th, so there's still time.

OPA is a J2EE application that permits an organization to provide a means for interested parties to submit proposals for projects, and for tracking these proposals. The project is sponsored by Canada's Treasury Board Secretariat in the office of the CIO.

Four monetary prizes of $1000 will be offered for the best patches submitted, and the winners will be selected by a panel of individuals experienced and respected in several fields of software development.

To participate, register at The contest started at noon EDT on Sunday March 22nd. All submissions must be in by midnight EDT on Sunday, March 28th.

Good luck!
