Regional Ambassadors R1
This is the welcome page for Region 1 (New England) of the Regional Ambassador arm of the Wikipedia Ambassador Program. To apply to become a Wikipedia Campus Ambassador for this region, please follow the instructions here.
Today, Region 1 includes the entire New England area.
In fact, Region 10 was originally divided into Northern California and Southern California, with Hawaii covered in the Great Lakes Region (along with Alaska). Regions at that time were based on anticipated workload for the next year. However, adjustments were made by the Regional Ambassadors at the Wikipedia in Higher Education Summit in early July 2011. The current configuration was chosen because it most closely organizes states for which Ambassadors can provide support.
