Below listed are the selections for the United States Collaboration of the Month and how they were improved.

  • Note: Prior to the reboot in February 2011 it was called the Collaboration of the Week. In 2011 it was changed it to be a monthly collaboration.

Collaboration of the Month[edit]

In February 2011, WikiProject United States relaunched the United States Wikipedians' Collaboration. Rather than a weekly collaboration it was decided to extend the time period to monthly, allowing more editors to participate and more time to expand the articles.
