Challenge: 100 years of Finland
1-30 November 2017

Welcome to the Wikipedia writing contest around Finnish culture!

About the list[edit]

This is a closed list of 100 articles. Do not try to change the list. Only edits to these articles, and their translations in other languages, give you points.

About the articles[edit]

Almost all of the Finnish articles have been through some kind of peer review, and reached the status of featured, good or "OK" articles. The corresponding English articles have at least one external link, but there is certainly room for improvement. You can translate from Finnish or English, or do your own research. What counts is that your contributions are to the articles linked to these through Wikidata (see link "languages" in left column) and in any of the language versions listed in the Participants page.
