Camera phone challenge: Darndest things that geeks' kids do

You have from now until Friday, February 25, 2011 at 5:00 PM EST to submit camera phone photos of your kids doing the darndest things. We will send the participants of our three favorite submissions some free swag!

Sometimes, when IT pros aren't troubleshooting, backing up data, migrating to new platforms, or other tasks from the trenches, they procreate.  And just like the rest of the population, geeks' kids can do the darndest things. We'd like to see you call capture some of those moments on your camera phones!

You have from now until Friday, February 25, 2011 at 5:00 PM EST to submit camera phone photos of your kids doing something silly, crazy, or just plain interesting. Please send these original photos, along with information about what phone you used (and the model number), a little bit about the photo you're submitting (optional), and your TR username to trol at techrepublic.com.

The TechRepublic editorial staff will select their three favorite photos from all the entries, and the TechRepublic members who submitted those photos will receive some free swag!

Parents, please note that these photos will be published on TechRepublic. Due to the potential for creepy crawlers on the Internet, make sure that photos you submit do not have any identifying information, such as names or geographic location.
