The school wiki-project ran by a 15 years old Polish student

Summary: The project Ziemia Tarnowska w Wikipedii (en: Tarnów Land on Wikipedia), took place in March-May 2022 at the Integrated Primary School in Tarnów. Project activities included a coordinator and 14 participants (11-15 years old) writing and expanding a total of 18 articles, some of which were published in the main Wikipedia space by June 15, 2022.

Kacper is the youngest admin of the Polish Wikipedia, and he is involved in many projects and tasks within the community. He is a great asset to the many teams of Wikimedia Poland. Kacper Szymański, the coordinator of the project, gathered the group of his fellow students, who – in case they were struggling with grammar, style or getting reliable sources – were then supported by their teachers. Over the course of the project, Kacper ran a few workshops for the group, explaining the rules of Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. The group also went on a photo-walk.

The partner of the campaign and the founder of the awards was the Wikimedia Polska Association.

As a part of the project, prizes were awarded to participants who have been particularly successful in writing articles on the Polish-language Wikipedia, or who have published good-quality photos in the Wikimedia Commons media library.
