2009 Student Diplomat Video Contest

With the 2009 Student Diplomat Video Contest, students across the country have a chance to become the next Student Diplomat – and win $300 – just by sharing a story about their experiences abroad.

The contest, announced today by NAFSA: Association of International Educators and Abroad View, the global education magazine for students, is open to U.S. undergraduate students who are currently studying abroad or have recently returned from a study abroad experience. Videos should focus on how their experience has helped to advance global understanding. Participants are encouraged to consider how their study abroad experience has shaped them as a global citizen, served as a bridge to cross-cultural understanding, promoted peace, or positively impacted the local community in which they studied. Videos should be no longer than three minutes.

The deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. EDT, November 6, 2009. After the finalists are chosen by an expert panel of judges, the winning video will be selected through open voting on the NAFSA Web site. The winner will receive a $300 cash prize and the title of “2009 Student Diplomat.”
