The Student Diplomat Video Contest Deadline is Near!

NAFSA: Association of International Educators and Abroad View, the global magazine for students, are hosting this contest to give U.S. students the opportunity to share how their study abroad experiences have helped to advance global understanding. The extended deadline for the contest – December 15, 2009 – is quickly approaching. Please help them spread the word with students.

If you’re looking for a message to include in your next communication with your students abroad right now, you can use this one:

“Has your study abroad experience helped to shape you as a global citizen, served as a bridge to cross-cultural understanding, promoted peace, or positively impacted the local community in which you are studying? If you answered yes to any of these questions and want to tell your story, check out the Student Diplomat Video Contest hosted by NAFSA and Abroad View magazine. A short video – one to three minutes -- about how your study abroad experience has helped to advance global understanding enters you for the chance to win $300 and become the next Student Diplomat! But, the deadline of December 15th is quickly approaching, so be sure to get your video in soon! To read the contest rules and learn how you can submit your video, visit the
Contest Page.”

  1. I’ve reflected on that conversation and recognize that parents latching themselves onto a story like this may result in a specific barrier to study abroad, and this will be of growing concern to those of us who work tirelessly to send our students abroad.
