We are still discussing exactly what prize we could award, we were thinking of a storage device like a SD card or USB key. The first prize could be an external hard drive. As soon as we have the price, we will put them on the proposal. GastelEtzwane (talk) 20:43, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

2nd place prize: one 128 GB SD card - 40,000 CFA
