Description

This is a celebration which will be held four months (and a week) after the real 'Wikipedia day'. The four months was selected as we are eagerly waiting for the four millionth article on Wikipedia. The celebration will basically consist of some short fun games testing your 'Wiki' skills. We may also include some quizzes among the local schools and the winner will be awarded in this event. The other events may also include events like debate and poster competitions. But the matters are subject to change. Other events include a short seminar which will basically consist of sharing ideas and proposals for the development of this internet community. We are also waiting to give out a lot of Wikipedia merchandise. So thumbs up guys.

The seminar will focus on the following topics:

  • The importance of Wikipedia in the local and less reached areas of the globe.
  • The importance of increase in awareness to control vandalization and quality control of articles.
  • The importance of each individual as a contributor.

Trying to hold talks with the NIT chaps that will add to celebrations.
