An invitation to a project created by Wikipedia. Participation will be rewarded by a page allocated to the school who had the most participants to project.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?[edit]

If you’re not certain about how to respond to this question when starting your idea, you do not need to answer it right now. Campaign participants and Wikimedia Foundation staff can help you consider some options.
There has to be a platform for registration, in the same type of format as the user info, with an additional field; :"Project Participation" where the school can register and ticks to page will be allocated to the schools name.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?[edit]

Do you need people with specific skills or resources to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? Do you need advising from Wikimedia Foundation staff?
I don't have all the necessary skills to drive the project, and need assistance from system developers to administrate the launch and maintenance of project.
