As Americans across the United States kick off the 4th of July weekend, the “Summer of Monuments” campaign prepares to launch an exciting photo contest focusing especially on Southern states whose history is underrepresented on Wikimedia Commons. So snap a few pictures,  upload your photos and get a chance at a cash prize!

There's more than #Wikimetrics. On July 16, join +Wikimedia Program Evaluation's first webinar on tools and APIs for evaluation data:
This presentation will provide a general overview of how to collect and use data about edits, pages, categories, and more through the Wikimedia API and the w:MySQL databases available on Wikimedia Labs. Attendees will learn how to get access to these resources, and will be provided with some examples of research activities that these resources can support. A follow-on series of MySQL tutorial sessions is planned for August and September.
