Today’s launch of the 2012 Student Diplomat Video Contest invites college students across the country to tell the world, through the creative use of video, how their study abroad experiences made them “student diplomats.”
Connecting Our World (powered by NAFSA: Association of International Educators) has partnered with STA Travel, a NAFSA Global Partner, to bring you the contest, which is open to U.S. college students and recent graduates who are currently studying abroad or have recently returned from a study abroad experience.
What to submit:
Video submissions (no longer than three minutes) should tell a compelling story about how students can become “student diplomats” while studying abroad, by connecting in a meaningful way with people and cultures in other countries, adapting to new environments and languages, challenging their own misconceptions, and becoming more prepared for school and future careers. Find the complete contest guidelines here.
Deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM EST on November 1, 2012
We all know the great stories students have from studying abroad — now they have the chance to win a $1,000 travel voucher for telling them!
If you are a student, I also invite you to join our student community at www.facebook.com/StudentsCoWorld which will keep you updated about the contest. If you are not a student, please help spread the word by using the tips and ideas on this page.
