The winning non-profit website will be based on the Plone open source content management system and may include features such as an event calendar, a slideshow, a news section, embedded video files, a staff/people directory, and more. Working on a real Plone project for a non-profit organization will give meaning to the project and foster attendees' attention.

The Plone Immersive Training Experience, hosted by Six Feet Up from September 10-12, in Indianapolis, IN, is designed to engage participants in real problem-solving activities that take them from initial setup to final deployment of a finished website.  Participants will get a first hand introduction to Plone with the help of fourteen on-site Mentors hand-selected from the international Plone Community for their expertise in Plone, leadership and teaching skills. The Mentors will direct ten workshops dedicated to core elements of any common Plone development project.
