Dear Wikipedians of the world, this year the article writing contest CEE Spring takes place for the third time. It is a contest in which Wikipedians write about topics like the culture, history, notable people, geography, etc., of the region of Central and Eastern Europe. We are aiming to close the content gap about the region on as many Wikipedias as possible and this year we are opening it for local contests outside of the region. On most Wikipedias we, Wikipedians, write about our own region and topics of worldwide significance. On most Wikipedias there would be an article about your own history and the history of the Roman Empire, but there would not be an article about the Kingdom of Livonia, there would be an article about Luciano Pavarotti, but not about Solomiya Krushelnytska, an article about Lord Byron, but not about Hristo Botev.
You can help us close this knowledge gap by joining CEE Spring and organising a local contest on your own Wikipedia. It starts on March 21st and ends on May 31st. The local organisers from the CEE region will prepare topics on their parts of the world and put them at , so that the participants from your community can find inspiration easily. You can follow our blog  and our Facebook page  where we share the stories of the created articles and interesting topics. If you wish to organise a contest on your wiki please add your wiki and name at . And if someone creates something exceptional there might be a pleasant surprise for them one day.
