support, please remember to submit your application here:
You have to submit your application by the 9th of January.
Please remember to take the application seriously, and include all
relevant information that can help to support it! It's extremely
disappointing to see excellent candidates fail to get support simply
because they didn't include important information. Your activity
off-wiki is definitely relevant, so sell yourself!

Tomorrow is the first edit-a-thon for the Wikipedia Primary School project -
allowing students, families and teachers to find on Wikipedia the
documentation necessary to obtain the primary school qualification in their
country, in their language.
Wikipedia is meant to be an educational tool and it is currently available
online, via mobile phones and offline. Experiences have shown that, once
accessible, Wikipedia does not provide information that responds directly to
curriculum-based questions. The project relies on Wikipedia as an existing
and growing resource, it solves the need for an encyclopedia capable of
responding to curriculum-based questions, and it fosters Wikipedia content,
quality and outreach.
For more information, please visit the Wikipedia Primary School Edit-a-thon
We look forward to seeing you there.
