As you may already know, January 2022 marked Spirit’s 20th anniversary as a J-1 visa program sponsor designated by the Department of State. Twenty years! Part of our anniversary celebration is to invite all Spirit alumni over the past 20 years to share their exchange stories through the Spirit Alumni: Where Are They Now? blog contest. All alumni submissions featured on our blog will win a $20 Amazon gift card!
Here are the contest details:
“Spirit Alumni: Where are They Now?” entries should include:
- Length: 750 words or less
- Tell us about your exchange: Tell us how your exchange experience impacted you. Include information on your Host Company and what your experience was like there.
- How did your exchange contribute to a “spirit” of international understanding in the world? Example: You made American friends who changed your outlook on U.S. culture, or you made friends from other countries.
- Where are you now? Tell us about your current life or profession and how your exchange helped you (or is helping you) achieve your life goals.
- Photos: Include at least two pictures, one from your exchange in the USA and one from your current life or work.
- Deadline: Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 4th
We look forward to hearing from you!
