my peace of the corps contest

The Peace Corps changed your life. We want to hear your story.

(Note: You do NOT need to have been a Peace Corps Volunteer to enter the contest.)

This summer, the National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) is running a video contest in celebration of the upcoming 50th Anniversary of the Peace Corps. We're asking you to submit a one- to two-minute video about how the Peace Corps, a Peace Corps Volunteer, or Returned Peace Corps Volunteer changed your life.

* Perhaps it was a teacher whose stories of cultures overseas opened your eyes to the world.
* Maybe it was your co-worker whose unique ability to connect with people made all the difference.
* It could be a Peace Corps Volunteer living in your community who inspired you to dream big.
* Or maybe it's your mother, whose service overseas proved that you're never too old to have an adventure.

Whether you served in the Peace Corps or not, we all share its legacy.
Tell us your story. Tell us about your piece of the Peace Corps.

* Grand Prize: $2,500
* Second prize: $1,000
* Third prize: $500

You can view a 36 sec. promotional video for the contest here.

* This contest is generously sponsored by Juliane Heyman, Peace Corps Staff, 1961-66.
