Does educational value figure in the PotD or PotY
contests? It should.
Other projects have contests to produce content; it drives
participation and quality. As long as the value being sought is
understood ("great content that furthers the project mission"), then I
don't see the problem.
In answer to my own question, the picture contests revolve around
featured images - and the featured image requirements include an
assessment of value that is based upon several criteria related to the
core Commons mission.
