Do you have a great study abroad story? Or, maybe you know someone who does. Either way, the deadline for the 2009 Student Diplomat Video Contest is upon us.

NAFSA: Association of International Educators and Abroad View, the global magazine for students, have invited U.S. students to share how their study abroad experiences have helped advance global understanding. We’ve seen some great entries, but we haven’t seen yours – the deadline for all submissions is Dec. 15, 2009.

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! 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.

For complete contest guidelines and to learn how to submit a video, visit the Contest Page.
