Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

How to engage high school students to edit Wikipedia?

What is your solution?[edit]

We want to show the added value of editing Wikipedia for professional development and academic advancement.

In the long term we are looking to make an open call to students which would organize camps and lead as Ambassadors. These students could help initiate schools clubs and create a network of editors, volunteers and staff.
