International Education Week (IEW) is an initiative led by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange. It is observed in more than 100 countries worldwide every November.

This year, over 300 students submitted presentations that they gave over 2,000 times, reaching almost 50,000 people in their schools and communities! Thank you to everyone who submitted presentations and tagged us on social media in your amazing photos for #IEW2019. Your participation and enthusiasm for intercultural education truly inspired us!
