Please tell us something special about your education program that the data may not reveal. For example:

  • You could highlight an achievement you are particularly proud of. We've built an efficient program that mostly runs itself. It is organized so that the program management can be easily transferred from the current organizers to a professional who will hopefully take the whole program to a higher level.
  • You could acknowledge a special student, educator, or volunteer. My thanks go to all the teachers who have collaborated with us for many years now - becoming more independent and knowledgeable about Wikipedia year by year and multiplicating the outcome of the initial efforts.
  • You could tell us what you enjoy most about the Wikipedia Education Program. It's one of the few chances for many people to encounter the living organism of Wikipedia and make their own opinion of it. Also it brings closer Wikipedia and academia, two worlds which have essentially the same goals but do not know it yet.
