> Hello everyone!
>
> We wanted to share some good news with you: Our international team around
> the Wikimedia Hackathon mentoring program won the first Austrian Open
> Source Award in the category "Diversity" [1].
>
> The Austrian Open Source Award was established this year in order to raise
> awareness and visibility for our local Open Source Communities and their
> projects. The jury consisted of representatives from across the various
> Open Communities in Austria (Open Knowledge, Linux, and Drupal among
> others) and honoured outstanding projects in the categories Open Data, Open
> Software, Open Hardware, and Diversity.
>
> The Jury particularly mentioned our comprehensive documentation under a
> free license which enables other event organizers to apply our ideas and
> concepts and to build on them [2] [3].
> We are very happy about this positive signal for inclusive events, which
> make it easier for all newcomers to join our great communities and we hope
> it encourages even more people to also make our other Wikimedia events more
> and more newcomer friendly. A special thanks goes to our awesome mentors
> who were the heart and soul of the mentoring program and the Hackathon!
>
> For more information about what we learned around the mentoring program
> you can also check out our post from the Wikimedia Blog [4].
