Launching the Afrosports 2024 Contest

The African Games and Sports Writing Contest (Afrosports) has the goal of bridging the African sport content gap on Wikipedia. This will be achieved by writing articles about the historical and contemporary African Sports Scene. This year’s Afrosports contest is no different. We strive to publish articles on Wikipedia that will expand the knowledge currently available in Africa’s historical and contemporary Sports Scene.

This contest hopes to brighten the beauty that lies within sportsmanship and illustrate the beauty inherent in sports. We hope to bring to light the African sports sector by publishing Articles on Wikipedia featuring African games, Sports and Sportspersons.

The Afrosports 2024 Contest

The Afrosports Contest 2024 will be focusing on the English Wikipedia and 5 other African languages. This includes Igbo Wikipedia, Hausa Wikipedia, Yoruba Wikipedia, Swahili Wikipedia, and the Kinyarwanda Wikipedia.

You don’t have to worry if you aren’t proficient in any of the African languages listed. We have made the option of writing as many articles on the English Wikipedia as possible.

If you are new to writing articles on Wikipedia, you don’t have to worry because we have you covered. Free Knowledge Africa will be organizing an in-depth training session. It will be a step-by-step beginner friendly session to teach you all you need to know about creating articles on Wikipedia. These training sessions will be virtual, that way you can join from the comfort of your home at a convenient time. 

There will also be community groups where you will have access to your trainers when you have questions.

As cherry on top the cake, there are amazing prizes to be won ranging from $50 to $150.
