International Education Week 2014!

International Education Week 2014!

International Education Week is an opportunity for you to share YOUR culture and traditions with Americans. In order to encourage you to be active in IEW and to reward your participation, the Inbound Team has organized the following contests. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges made up of American Councils staff and volunteers in Washington, D.C. Students may enter up to two categories (one submission per category), and we will choose one winner per category. Prizes vary from $25-$50 gift certificates.
