Author: Translated by Frhdkazan from original Russian Wikinews article

Summary: Selet Wikischool completed its Fall-2019 Edutainment Outreach Program. These traditional twice-a-year (Spring+Fall) session runs are one of the main avenues of introducing Republic of Tatarstan youth to Wikimedia platforms.

Fall 2019 Session can be structurally broken into 3 parts:

  1. Application period, 29 October - 20 November.
  2. Edutainment session, 21 November - 12 December.
  3. Mini-contest for session participants, 12-31 December.

The Program consisted of 7 meetings, of which 3 were practical editing sessions & 4 were master-class type presentations.

Practical lessons are dedicated to introduction to Wikipedia, visual and code editors, and principles aspects of article creation. Each participant will need to write an article to receive a participation certificate.

Presentations were dedicated to widening knowledge about Wikimedia projects, such as Commons and Wikinews. All videos are uploaded to Wikimedia Community of Tatar language User Group's YouTube channel.

Program organizers and most active participants came up together offline for the last meeting.
