Project GoalEdit

Choose one or more of the following goals. You can add or delete goals as needed.

  1. Add or improve content
  2. Engage existing editors
  3. Attract new editors

Project PlanEdit


Tell us how you'll carry out your project. Be sure to answer the following questions:
1. What content will the contest focus on, and why is it important to your community?

We seek to fill two major subject gaps – women and Africa, therefore we will focus on writing articles about women in Africa. We add two more regions - Central America and South America - for easier writing and because these two regions are also rarely written about in Vietnamese Wikipedia.
We will organize two contest months - July and September 2018

2. How will you judge the contest and award prizes?

We use Fountain to keep track of the score.
Scoring system: one point will be given for each new article on a woman of the specified regions. The minimum requirement is 2000 bytes and 250 words, excluding templates and references.
Prizes will be given to the top eight scorers. Prizes are phone recharge cards, so delivery should not be a problem.

3. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?

This would be our community's third contest rapid grant from WMF.


For writing contests:

  1. Number of participants: 40
  2. Number of articles created or improved: 450/month * 2 = 900 articles (estimated from the result of the previous contest in 2017)


What resources do you have? Include information on who is organizing the project, what they will do, and if you will receive support from anywhere else (in-kind donations or additional funding).

Tuanminh01 - organizer, will create contest pages, check scores, purchase and give prizes

What resources do you need? For your funding request, list bullet points for each expense and include a total amount.

Total funding needed: 524.02 USD for prizes - with 8 prizes for each contest.

Community engagementEdit

How will you let others in your community know about your project? Why are you targeting a specific audience? How will you engage the community you’re aiming to serve at various points during your project? Community input and participation helps make projects successful.

The contest will be announced 2-4 weeks in advance in Sitenotice, Village pump and Facebook page.
We will ask editors who are working in universities to promote it to their students.
