Egyptian students and professors celebrate last term's accomplishments
Students and professors put on a celebration conference at Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt, to celebrate their achievements from the previous Fall 2013-2014 semester. Students were recognized for their contributions with certificates and top contributors were given Wikipedia hoodie sweatshirts as gifts. Students from Egypt contributed 7.3 million bytes of new content to the Arabic Wikipedia. The event also highlighted their efforts to close the gender gap, with 88.9% female participants in the previous term. The event was organized by Dr. Karma Sami from Ain Shams University and coordinated by program leader Samir El-Sharbaty.
