Good for you for going for it. 

Licenses are tough to understand. There are a few different routes. The simplest easiest way is to simply publish your source code for free. <> as a great place for that. Then you can do whatever you want with it. Usually people in your position just do that.

If you can’t do that, I’ll let others chime in here about them since I have a project of my own to get back to!

Good luck!

I would like to use PyQT to write a program for a desktop to control routers (School project) I know that I can use a library for open source and free code, but can I send this program to competitions and Olympiads? (After all, there I can get an award) Can an educational institution use my program within its walls?
