Include language on your page (or in the footer), including links to the CSEdWeek and Code.org websites, that says the following:
“The 'Hour of Code™'/'Hora del Código®' is a global initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.”
No use of "Hour of Code" or "Hora del Código" in app names.

Subject line: Join me and over 100 million students for an Hour of Code
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But only 47% of all high schools teach computer science. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this! If you've heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Every Apple Store in the world has hosted an Hour of Code, and leaders like President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote their first lines of code as part of the campaign.
This year, let's make it even bigger. I’m asking you to join the Hour of Code 2016. Please get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, Prosinec 7-13.
Get the word out. Host an event. Ask a local school to sign up. Or try the Hour of Code yourself—everyone can benefit from learning the basics.

Subject line: Can we help you host an Hour of Code?
Between Prosinec 7-13, ten percent of students around the world will celebrate Computer Science Education Week by doing an Hour of Code at their school. It’s an opportunity for every child to learn how the technology around us works.
[Our organization/My name] would love to help [school name] run an Hour of Code event. We can help teachers host an Hour of Code in their classrooms (we don’t even need computers!) or if you would like to host a school assembly, we can arrange for a speaker to talk about how technology works and what it’s like to be a software engineer.
The students will create their own apps or games they can show their parents, and we’ll also print Hour of Code certificates they can bring home. And, it’s fun! With interactive, hands-on activities, students will learn computational thinking skills in an approachable way.

Subject line: Our students are changing the future with an Hour of Code
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 47% of all high schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Prosinec 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that [SCHOOL NAME] is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community.
This is a chance to change the future of education in [TOWN/CITY NAME].

Subject line: Local school joins mission to introduce students to computer science
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet, but only 47% of all high schools teach computer science. Young women and students from marginalized racial and ethnic groups are severely underrepresented in computer science classes, and in the tech industry. Dobrou zprávou je, že jsme na cestě, jak to změnit.
With the Hour of Code, computer science has been on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo!, and Disney. Over 100 partners have joined together to support this movement. Každý Apple Store na světě už pořádal Hodinu programování. Even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign.
Proto se všech [X number] studentů z [SCHOOL NAME] účastní největší vzdělávací akce v historii, Hodiny kódu, během Týdne vzdělávání v informatice (3.–9. prosince).
I'm writing to invite you to attend our kickoff assembly and to see kids start the activity on [DATE].
Hodina programování, kterou pořádá nezisková společnost Code.org a více než 100 dalších, je globální hnutí, které věří, že dnešní studenti jsou připraveni naučit se dovednosti kriticky nezbytné pro úspěch v 21. století. Please join us.

I look forward to being in touch.
Subject line: Join our school as we change the future with an Hour of Code
Dear [Mayor/Governor/Representative/Senator LAST NAME]:
Did you know that computing is the #1 source of wages in the U.S.? There are more than 500,000 computing jobs open nationwide, but last year only 42,969 computer science students graduated into the workforce.
Computer science is foundational for every industry today, yet most schools don’t teach it. At [SCHOOL NAME], we are trying to change that.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Prosinec 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
I'm writing to invite you to join our Hour of Code event and speak at our kickoff assembly. It’ll take place on [DATE, TIME, PLACE], and will make a strong statement that [State or City name] is ready to teach our students critical 21st-century skills. We want to ensure that our students are on the forefront of creating technology of the future—not just consuming it.
Please contact me at [PHONE NUMBER OR EMAIL ADDRESS]. I look forward to your response.
