WikiConference North America - Proposals and Scholarship Apps Due!
Friendly reminder that proposal submissions and scholarship applications for WikiConference North America 2018 are due tomorrow, August 15!
WikiConference North America is taking place in Columbus, Ohio, from October 18-21. Our host is the Ohio State University Libraries, which provides a great opportunity to work with local libraries and cultural institutions.
Thursday consists of our hackathon, Wikidata activities, and more to come. Friday will be our Culture Crawl and intro reception, which take place in various cultural institutions in downtown Columbus. Saturday and Sunday will be our conventional programming days made up of content contributed by you, the community.
Scholarship applications are open to Wikimedians who live in North America and actively contribute to a Wikimedia project. Scholarship awards are $500 USD. The Wiki Education Foundation is also providing their own scholarships for presenters participating in the academic peer review option.
For submissions, we are looking forward to seeing proposals for presentations, workshops, roundtables, panels, and more. We also have an academic peer review track this year. Don't be afraid to submit your idea - the conference is a great, welcoming opportunity to present on your projects, local activities, research, or anything else you are passionate about.
