About the Contest

The #SITVideoContest is here! Submit a 60-second video that captures the essence and authenticity of your semester or summer abroad with SIT. We want your best work; any approach, any style. There are no categories, but we want you to show us what makes study abroad such a special experience – an exciting excursion, your homestay family, classes, research, an internship, life in your town. Submit your entry by January 1, 2020!

We encourage you to share your video on social media after you’ve entered using #SITVideoContest.
