something like: making a really huge/slow unoptimized TI-BASIC program that only displays "THE GAME";The one with slowest speed/biggest size wins :D

No, I think it should be quite constructive.

No, that's too easy. How about making BASIC progs that crash your calc in the most creative ways? Oh, and no using the Asm( command and an extra prog :P

Is that even possible without OS 2.53MP?

I don't think so. I can crash any OS (especially 1.13) without a single line of BASIC nor ASM code, though.

Only trick I know of is that SortA()/SortD() thing, but even that only freezes a calculator for an hour or so.

Yeah I meant more tricks like the 2-byte token recall glitch, the good ol' Equ>Str( bug or the OS 1.13-only crashes when scrolling a 50+ program menu.

Speaking of strange glitches, try storing the [H] matrix into a string and then recall it to the homescreen

yeah, somehow TI's recall features messes up ONLY the [H] matrix o.O

This would be nice indeed. Of course today there would need to be some category rotation, though, due to the high amount of languages or calculators that are popular. We can leave the FX stuff to Planète-Casio, since they do them regularly, and PRIZM dev seems dead here, but we have:

83+/84+/SE: TI-BASIC, Axe, ASM, Grammer, Hybrid (xLIB/Celtic/DCS)
84+CSE: TI-BASIC, , ASM, hybrid (Doors CSE/IViewer/LCDTOOL)
TI-Nspire: Lua, C/ASM (although with Ndless being permanently blocked by hardware, not just software, the latter might not be very popular since almost nobody got Ndless-able Nspires anymore.)
HP Prime: HP PPL (whenever this calc get more popular)

It might be best, for the time being, to stick to Z80 models, though, since they are the most popular, but it wouldn't hurt to do a few HP Prime contests in the future when people are more used to the calc.
