Join AFS-USA for

International Education Week

November 12-16, 2018

We’ve put together some helpful resources for you to #PassPeaceForward in your community!

Student Contest

Follow these steps to make an impact (and maybe even win a prize!) during International Education Week (IEW):

  • STEP 1: Ask your teachers if you can give a cultural presentation in their classes during IEW (November 12-16, 2018). You can print this page and bring it to them when you ask.
  • STEP 2: Download this PowerPoint Presentation Template to fill in with details about your culture and experiences. Add lots of pictures! Be sure to read the notes below each slide for presenting tips.
  • STEP 3: Share promo code IEW2018 with your classmates to receive a 75% discount off their application fee! (Code expires 12/31/18)
  • STEP 4: After your presentation, tell us what you did! Log your presentation before the end of November, and you could win a Polaroid camera!

You will also receive a mailing with these instructions and other details to help you make the most of your IEW experience.


By giving one or more presentations in your school and joining the initiative to #PassPeaceForward, you’ll be entered for the chance to win a Polaroid camera! Just be sure to log your presentation by November 30, 2018.
