Videos Promoting Impact and Ideals
NAFSA invites you to submit a video that showcases the impact of international education. You may want to address any of the following:
- How does your campus and community welcome and orient international students?
- How do returned study abroad students contribute to the integration of international students on your campus?
- How are true, lasting friendships between domestic and international students facilitated on your campus?
- How do immigration issues affect your campus and community?
- How has international education affected the success of your students in finding employment or advancing their careers?
- How does your faculty engage international students in helping all students explore world cultures?
- How does your institution collaborate with partners abroad to help solve global problems?
- How does your institution encourage all students to think and act globally?
How Videos Will be Judged
The review team welcomes submissions from all institutional types; submissions from community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and minority-serving institutions are especially encouraged. A panel of judges will evaluate eligible videos on quality, relevance, impact, and creativity, and select six top videos.
- The selected six videos will be posted on the main contest page, and we will invite international educators to vote for their favorite video from April 22 through May 6.
- The winning video and runners-up will be selected from among the finalists based both on the judging of our expert panel of judges and on the public voting. The winner and runners-up will be announced at the Annual Conference Business Meeting, Wednesday, May 29, 2013.
- The video may be no longer than five (5) minutes in length.
- Each individual may enter only one (1) video for submission, but an institution may enter multiple videos. Institutions that participated in last year’s contest are encouraged to submit videos again this year, but videos submitted last year will not be considered.
- All videos submitted will be considered for public viewing on the NAFSA: Association of International Educators website and affiliated channels online (see the full terms and conditions on the contest entry form).
- Your video submission is not complete without the contest entry form.
- The video must not contain material that violates or infringes another's rights, including but not limited to privacy, publicity or intellectual property rights, or that constitutes copyright or license infringement.
