Hello, Kerryn and everyone.

I think that this sounds good and lays a foundation for executing the
challenge and other activities going forward. I think that an awareness
drive is something that could be undertaken. We need to think about this
and the easiest and most interesting way to do it. WMZA made some positive
academic contacts during our kickoff workshop. Not so much contact, though,
with schools but I think that the high school idea is also really good and
we would have to find a contact. I think that some people on the ZA board
will be able to assist with.
So now that we are postponing the Wikipedia Challenge idea with Google,
let's try and make progress with outreach. Does WMZA have current plans for
outreach activity? If so, where can I see them, what is the timeline, and
how can the WMF help? If not, let's start planning some! The WMF can help
with funding, materials (mostly in English), and networking. Does WMZA have
an internal wiki, or do you do planning on Meta, or just on this list?
Lourie and I can also contact the WMZA board members
directly to see if
there is interest and as a group and to come up with a few ideas as well.
So what does the board say?
