Resolution No. 4.B2.13: 2013 Distinguished Service Award


Wikimedia District of Columbia awards its 2013 Distinguished Service Award to Sara Snyder of the Archives of American Art and Effie Kapsalis of the Smithsonian Institution Archives for exemplary contributions to the advancement of public knowledge and the collection, development, and dissemination of educational content.

Ms. Snyder and Ms. Kapsalis have demonstrated leadership in organizing events for the benefit of Wikimedia projects, as well as recruiting colleagues at the Smithsonian to participate in the development of Wikipedia articles. Events organized in 2012 and 2013 by Ms. Snyder and Ms. Kapsalis have resulted in the creation and improvement of over one hundred Wikipedia articles, as well as the contributions of free media to Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia District of Columbia looks forward to further opportunities to work with the Smithsonian Institution to achieve our common mission of making information accessible to everyone.
