Last Chance to Vote!

The Study Abroad Photo and Video Contest voting period has been extended through Monday, October 18, 2010!
Last year, over 400 VCU students studied abroad through the VCU Education Abroad office! Because we love hearing our students’ stories, we encourage them to share in as many ways as possible. This summer, we asked students who studied abroad during the 2009-2010 academic year to share their stories with us visually through photography and video!
We received many great submissions. Now we are asking VCU students to give us your opinion- log on to our Facebook and YouTube pages, and vote on your favorite photo and video! Be sure to tell your friends to become a “fan” of VCU Education Abroad in order to vote- faculty and staff can vote too!
We will be counting the number of “Likes” each photo and video receives, and will determine which will win prizes in each category.
The extended deadline for voting is October 18th, 2010.
Good luck to all of our returned students who entered the contest!
