Description (no more than 300 words)

International Education Week (IEW) is a joint project between the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department
of Education. It was created in an effort to promote international understanding and cooperation through education
and exchange. All ETC students are highly encouraged to make cultural presentations in their host communities as
part of IEW.
Where and when does it take place? IEW occurs the week of November 11-15, 2013. You can present in school, at
your religious institution, to after-school clubs, at your local nursing home, etc. ETC encourages all students to
participate in IEW and offers a contest for which the top 3 presenters win amazing prizes.
How can I get involved? Begin planning your presentation now. Ask teachers, your coordinator, or your host family
where you might be able to make your presentation. Make your presentation and take lots of pictures of the event
including the materials (props) that you used.
Prizes will be rewarded to the student who shows the most effort and originality.
All students who participate will receive an ETC shirt to keep or give away.
