IIE is pleased to announce, in partnership with The New York Times in Education, the 2016 Generation Study Abroad Voices Video Challenge. By hearing and seeing study abroad alumni articulate the value of their study abroad experience, we hope to inspire Generation Z and others to seek out an international experience as part of their college education.

Study abroad returnees are encouraged to submit digital story submissions between 0:30 seconds and 2 minutes long that demonstrate how study abroad gave them an edge, the impact it had on their personal or professional life and the world, and how The New York Times content helped them navigate, enhance or make sense of their experience. Teachers who studied abroad in college are encouraged to apply and share how their experience abroad has helped them with a skill that they use in the classroom today!

Winners will receive a $1,000 cash prize, an iPad, a trip to the IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad in Washington D.C., and a video spotlight on the New York Times in Education website. Winners will also be recognized as a Generation Study Abroad Voice. 

Check out last year’s winners on IIE’s Generation Study Abroad YouTube channel
