The Wikiconcours lycéen is a project runned more than 6 years now in partnership with the French Ministry of Education. It gathers around 800 to 1000 students and their teachers about editing Wikimedia projects mainly Wikipedia and Commons. Over the years this contest has endowed with educational materials as well technicals as human. It's a wonderful project to learn to the students the critical thinking and the co-production of knowledge. After 10 months of contributions, these are evaluated by a jury and three classes are the winners. We now have enough perspective to know what works and whats doesn't work and what are the differents pedagogical projects run by teachers (in collaboration with archives, museums, municipalities...).
