Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community?
- We will focus on writing and improving articles about Economy, Health and Education in Africa (see the article list here). This contents are so important to our community because articles about the mentioned focuses are very few in Swahili Wikipedia.
2. How have you let relevant Wikimedia communities know about this proposal? You are required to provide links to on-wiki pages to inform these communities about your proposed work. 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.
- We will invite UniStu Love Wiki participants (from June program) to join the writing contest by posting invitations on their user talk pages. We will send emails about the contest to our mailing list which includes anyone who has RSVP'd or attended UniStu Love Wiki event in the past. We will also use geolocated banners to advertise the contest to local Wikipedia readers, and promote it on our Facebook page, moreover we will use the Wikimedia Community User Group Tanzania meta page to notify the Wikimedia Community Members.
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.
- We will post on different social media and on the meta page. We will communicate with participants via: Social media, Mailing lists, Online gathering (zoom), posters.
4. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?
Note: Grantees, judges, and other contest leaders are ineligible to receive prizes. Grantees who are serving as judges may not receive gifts through grant funding.
- We will have a panel of three to five judges (Panel to be confirmed later) who will be responsible for judging the articles created during the contest. However, judgement will be based on the quality, clarity, completeness, number of articles and efficiency of the articles.
5. For photo contests, what is the strategy to get images used on projects?
- We will make sure at least 75% of the total uploaded during the contest will be used in the articles if there will be any.
