NAFSA: Association of International Educators and Abroad View, the global magazine for students, are holding a video contest to select the next student diplomat. If you’ve studied abroad from 2005 onwards through an accredited college or university, you’re eligible. All you need to do is submit a 1-3 minute video about how your study abroad experience has helped to advance global understanding.
What do you mean by “global understanding”, you ask? Well, if you’ve got stories about how your study abroad experience has created cross-cultural understanding, made you a better global citizen, and/or positively impacted a local community where you studied, you’re set. Craft those experiences into a moving narrative, tell it to the camera, and you’ve got a shot at $300 and student diplomat status, which would certainly look sweet on any traveler’s resume.
More guidelines can be found on the contest’s official website. The deadline for all submissions is Dec. 15, 2009.
In the meantime, why not go weigh in on the debate about the $120 million study abroad bill that is currently on it’s way to debate in the Senate? Do you think study abroad is inherently a good thing, and if so, why?
