I am thinking of entering this contest using FreePascal as the programming language, and would like to know if anyone could make any recommendations or would like to help (I don't think I could share the prizes if we won, though. ;^) )

I think it is a very interesting idea; I don't see any obstacles which
would prevent you from making such a system using free pascal. Many things
should be available already, FPC could be used as the glue to make things
work together.

The only tricky thing might be controlling the bill validator.
