NAFSA Student Diplomat Video Contest
Do you have a great study abroad story? Or, maybe you know
someone who does. The 2009 Student Diplomat Video Contest, launched today by
NAFSA: Association of International Educators and Abroad View, the global
magazine for students, invites undergraduate students to tell their story for a
chance to become the next Student Diplomat – and win $300.
The contest 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.
For complete contest guidelines and to learn how to submit a
video, visit www.nafsa.org/studentdiplomat.
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.”
