Wikipedia Day[edit]

On January 15, 2017, we have celebrated the 16th anniversary of Wikipedia not only at the WMAM office but also in Stepanakert Wikiclub. It has become a good tradition for all active Armenian Wikipedians to get together on the same day. This celebration is also a great opportunity for Wikimedia Armenia to summarize all organized contests and award the winners. On this day we also presented a report on the achievements of the year and talked about the future plans.
