Bangla Wikipedia article contest 2017[edit]

What is the purpose of Campaign? How will you measure the success of the campaign?[edit]

Description - Wikimedia Bangladesh and Bangla (Bengali) wikipedia community is working together to host an article contest on the occasion of International Mother Language Day. The occasion (Language Movement and the month) itself has the significant meaning to the Bengali speaking people so we believe it'll be a great opportunity to promote Bangla Wikipedia to the readers and have some of them on board with this contest. During the contest participants will be asked to translate a complete article from this list into Bengali. The reason for central notice is that we simply want to reach broader Wikimedia users from this region to see the contest as they mostly use English language version of Wikimedia projects rather than Bangla.
