Announcing "Mozillian of the Month (February)" experiment (nominating until 3/7)


(Irvin Chen) #1

Tl;dr, Please help nominate great Mozillian in your local community as (experiment) Mozillian of the Month by March 7 (15:00 UTC).


Hi Reps,

You all familiar with “Rep of the Month,” the monthly event to recognize the active and inspiring Reps for their work. In the past 7 years, more than 80 Reps had won this honor for their great work on contributing.

But besides Reps, we all know there are so many Mission Driven Mozillians contributing to different Mozilla projects, doing various activities, highly investing in support of the Mozilla’s Mission and Internet’s health, every day, everywhere around your local community.

With the Rep program evolving, shifting us to the community coordinator role, we want you - the Rep - to be the mentor, the coach, and the helper of the local Mozillians. To help them align with Mozilla, doing more, and create a bigger impact.

So we create this “Mozillian of the Month” experiment, a prize dedicated to all hard-work Mozillians. With our help, we want to share their stories, learn from their efforts, and inspire more Mozillians to shape a better internet together.

Nominations and Timeline

Nomination

The nomination period starts from now (Feb 24, 20:00 UTC) to March 7 (15:00 UTC). All Reps can nominate up to one Mozillian - not limited but preferred to non-Rep ( No self-nominations), by posting to Discourse “Reps” category, with the following format:

Title:

Contents:

If applicable, please also tell us how did you -as the Rep- help the nominee on their work.

Include some photos will be even better!

Voting

By March 8 (15:00 UTC), I will announce voting start and post a thread on the Discourse “Mozillians” category, with the link to all nominees’ story.

Every Mozillians (not limited to Rep) can vote to the nominee they want to encourage by “Liking” in that voting thread. The voting will last until March 18.

Result

By March 18, 15:00 UTC, the nominee who had the most “likes” in the voting thread, will win the “Mozillian of the Month (Feb 2019)” honor.

Let’s share the story with the rest of Mozilla-verse then.

In addition to this, we will prepare a small swag for the winner, and for you, if you did tell us how do you help them in the nomination post.


This is the experiment from the Reps OKRs Objective 1. The Council will evaluate after this trial, and decide if we want to make and improve it into a monthly event.

This is so awesome! We at the Mozilla Philippines community planned of having a similar recognition in place almost half a decade ago.

It is high time for those working silently in the background among our communities to be recognized.
