Announcing WikiConference North America in San Diego, Fri-Mon 7-10 October[edit]

I am not a regular participant to this WikiProject, so please excuse my intrusion. Still, I thought this would be of interest. Thanks RightCowLeftCoast for introducing this conference in a previous note here.

I am inviting participants in WikiProject United States to WikiConference North America to be held in San Diego Friday to Monday 7-10 October. Here are further details:

  • We are accepting submissions until 31 August.
  • We are accepting scholarship applications 9 August - 23 August. About 40 scholarships are available only for people in Canada, the US, and Mexico. Last year about 200 people applied for scholarships.
  • More volunteers are needed. In the usual wiki-way, anyone may comment on program submissions. At the conference in person, all staff will be volunteer and all attendees are encouraged check in with conference organizers about volunteering for the task queue even for an hour. Anyone interested may contact FloNight and Rosiestep to offer volunteer support.
  • Major sponsorship for the conference comes from the San Diego Public Library who are providing the venue and a grant from the Wikimedia Foundation.
  • This is the third year of this conference, with WikiConference USA being in New York in 2014 and in Washington DC in 2015. Check the schedules of those for examples of what kinds of programming will be offered this year.

Discussion about the conference on-wiki could happen at meta:WikiConference North America.

I am one of the organizers for this event. I thought that I should share this information here, as this conference includes the regional focus of this WikiProject. Thanks. Blue Rasberry (talk) 18:58, 10 August 2016 (UTC)

Kentucky lawyer and Presbyterian leader Edward William Cornelius Humphrey has been nominated for deletion for the second time.[edit]

The article was first deleted after a lengthy discussion cut short too soon. The article has been--and continues to be--improved. Please support my contention that the article should not be deleted.Mitzi.humphrey (talk) 20:16, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

potentially relevant discussion[edit]

This discussion related to beauty pageant winners mainly focuses on whether those who won competitions for individual US states are notable. I think this is of interest to people in this project.
