Voting in the first-ever Student Diplomat Video Contest (hosted by NAFSA and Abroad View magazine) opened on January 4th and closes on January 15th. When you have a few free minutes watch the five finalist videos and select your favorite.
Participants were asked to consider “how their study abroad experience has shaped them as global citizens, served as a bridge to cross-cultural understanding, promoted peace, or positively impacted the local community in which they studied.” You can access the competition site and vote here.
The winner selected by voters and an “expert” (my emphasis) panel of judges will be announced on Monday, January 18 and will receive a $300 cash prize and the title “2009 Student Diplomat.”
Good luck to all finalists!
