At this time in between Christmas and the new year, it is also a time for
fun things to do. So I prepared a challenge for you in the hope that you
will like it.
The Gallaudet university awards yearly the Laurent Clerc award . So far
there have been 43 recipients. Only three of them have a Wikipedia article
on the English Wikipedia.
The objective of this challenge is to show deaf people who are winners. To
make a start for you I have added all 43 Laurent Clerc award winners in
Wikidata . You can take part in this challenge by:
- write a Wikipedia article about these people
- add information about these people in Wikidata
- providing us with freely licensed images about these people
- check if there are other awards for deaf people or awards won by deaf
Wikipedia has a new feature called "draft". I know it exists but I do not
know the finer details. There is a draft article about Valerie , this
article can also do with some TLC.
I hope you like this challenge of mine. If there is an award, it is that
deaf people and deaf culture will get more positive attention.
