WikiChallenge African Schools by Orange Foundation is a multinational contest that creates a fun, engaging way to learn about knowledge building by contributing to Wikipedia. The contest encourages students from the same school to work together to create an article about their area. Their article could be about their village, a notable person or a local historic or geographic feature.
Participation to the contest requires prior registration of the school.
