This looks like a cool contest. However, I am not a high school student nor a US or Canadian citizen. I guess that is why I won't be able to participate in this contest. Goodluck to those who do.

I like the idea of doing a contest. Maybe there should be a contest where groups are created for each country and whichever country raises the most grains wins.

On a completely different note, I would like to mention bots. There is still a big problem with bots, and you guys at Freerice need to post a notice just about these bots. RICEMAN_DEFEATER_OF_HUNGER had on his description for a while a message against bots. He is awesome, because not only does he not use buts, but he raises a lot of grains.

But seriously though, who can raise 5 million grains in a day? These bots need to be stopped.
