Personal achievement badge

From Wikiwrimo

Personal achievement badges are self-awarded badges for reaching certain milestones in the NaNoWriMo journey.

These badges differ from the participation and writing badges in that participants award themselves the badges. All badges are self-awarded on the honor system. Personal achievement badges were added to the NaNoWriMo website in 2015. They were designed by Graham Dobson.

The personal achievement badges were redesigned in 2019 and could be added for any project, including Camp NaNoWriMo and other non-event projects.
