The contest is focused on creating articles related to Human Rights especially right to a environment and human rights activists.

Examples of places where this can be done include community discussion pages, affiliate discussion pages, or relevant project talk pages.
You may also provide information about external social media channels you may be using.

Currently I'm managing WhatsApp groups of Hausa Wikipedia editors and Facebook page, I will let my community know about the project via these social media and I will let them know via Hausa Wikimedians User Group and Hausa Wikipedia Discussion pages.

3. How will you let participants know about the contest? In what ways will you be communicating with them?
For example, these can include on-wiki spaces, social media channels, mailing lists, messaging apps, or physical/online gatherings.

One point (1.0) for every quality source or Citation used in an existing Wikipedia article. Two points (2.0) for quality (includes using the appropriate intonations, grammar etc.) The Outreach Dashboard and the hashtag #Wiki4HumanRights will be used to measure the contributions which will also help us to achieve an excellent Jury procedure.

The program will be in two parts, the first part being a workshop that will take place. During the workshop I plans to invite a lawyer and experts on the Nigerian Constitution to talk about Rights to a Healthy environment and experts on Environmental to discuss about environmental and how to make our environment healthier. I will also teach Participants how to create and Improve articles in Hausa Wikipedia.
The second part is the writing contest on Hausa Wikipedia. The Contest will focus on creating and promoting Human Rights articles especially articles related to a Right to healthy environment and human rights activists. The contest will last for four weeks. I will use the Dashboard Tools and the Hashtag for tracking participant's articles. I will also create a landing page where participants can submit their names and articles which they've created. I will use special methods to evaluate the results.
