Project Plan[edit]


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 are focused on women in sport, gender gap (improving female biographies) and involving the comunity in WikiDonne's activities.

2. How will you let people know about the contest?

Creating the wiki page, preparing the Outreach dashboard, informing the comunity.

3. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?

Like the previous contest, we have rules and we will have a jury made by expert wikipedians
  • Camelia, contest organizer, will create contest page and manage the Outreach dashboard, purchase prizes
  • Beatrice, will create lists of redlinks, will give answer questions on email and edithon talk page, will write the rules contest
  • Sannita, will support the partecipants and give technical help on Wikidata, as part of the jury will check scores
  • Blackcat, will support the partecipants and give technical help on Commons (licenses, templates etc), as part of the jury will check scores
  • Barbaking, will support the partecipants and give technical help on Wikipedia (wikification, templates etc), as part of the jury will check scores

4. For photo contests, what is the strategy to get images used on projects?

Is not a photo contest

5. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

First of all, we want to give a hand to the project Sport, who disperately needs help, improving the articles about women in sport. We also want to involve the comunity in our events, let them understand that writing articles about women doesn't mean division, but revitalizing the comunity by creating new entries or new arguments using another point of view. Is an enrichment for our encyclopedia.
