Google just announced the program for this year, and they planned to organize the event one month before as usual. As they said in the blog post,
We are pleased to announce Google Code-in (GCI) 2018, the 9th consecutive year of our contest for pre-university students ages 13-17. Please be aware GCI will start about a month earlier this year than in previous years - the contest starts for students October 23rd!

The contest begins for students on October 23, 2018 at 21:30 (India Standard Time)!
OpenMRS community participated in the Google Code-in as the mentoring organization for several years. So I hope, this year also we will be there for the mentoring
@ivange94 made a great attempt at trying to single handedly manage everything at the start, unfortunately I got involved much later due to being caught up in unforseen circumstances. He is right, the admin and coadmin must equally share the responsibility
Would love to see @jtatia and @reubenenv volunteer as admins.
The Google Code-in 2018 is just opened for the Orgs registration. So the Organizations can register from September 06 - September 17. I am referring on the registration process and will add more details soon.
