Let's publish a blog post about GSoC 2015 and Outreachy 10 by the end of these programs. It could be published in the Wikimedia blog and also at http://google-opensource.blogspot.com/ (Google is encouraging orgs to publish these summaries).

Post for the Wikimedia Blog are usually drafted here. @niharikakohli, since you are asking several contributors to write their piece of text, you might all want to do it in the draft wiki page already. It will make editing and fine tuning easier.
The the Comms team exports that wiki page to Wordpress with some black magic they have. I'm sure Google will have enough with the text available somewhere.
Also on thing, what about screenshots? Most projects should have some UI to show and capture by now. Let's show it and bring some color to the blog post! (sorry, I could have thought about this before)

I thought adding screenshots for nine projects might make it more cluttered than colored. But I'll attempt to gather some screenshots.
I have reviewed the draft. Good! Only one thing before handling it to Comms: the names of the interns are missing (linking to their user pages), and for them this would be something very important. Also for the readers it would be interesting to have a chance to know more about them. The blog post would improve if it would say
<link>Name Surname</link> from Country worked on..."
in every project section.
