Well you have to be 18 by April 9th, so if you're almost there you still have a shot :)

We had a lot of really great proposals last year, unfortunately more than we could select. If we get even half the number of good proposals this year, I'll be happy.

Also, some additional details:
- The age limit is minimum 18 years old by *April 9th* of this year.
- The application period ends on March 24th, so get those applications in!
- We will consider any and all proposals, including those that are not in assembly language, or not for TI calculators, so long as they have some relevance to what we do (handhelds, math, etc). Two of our four accepted proposals last year were TI calculator apps, one was a PC program, and one was a Pocket PC program.

Sounds like a great proposal for someone with the appropriate experience.

I hope to see more featured programs this year. It is rather sparse at the moment.

But there are many great projects in the making, such as Ultima V., which will be released this year, right?

Indeed. I can think of a few projects that are going to be released in the next couple of weeks, actually.
