I Have a Dream Contest

I Have a Dream for Ukraine English Speech and Essay Contest
This August 28th marks the 50th anniversary of the famous “I Have a Dream” speech by Martin Luther King Jr. In his speech Dr. King spoke of his vision of an America where people would be “judged on the content of their character and not the color of their skin.” Dr. King talked about freedom and equal rights for ALL Americans. His speech was a turning point in American history as we struggled to grow into a country that provided equal opportunity for every citizen. The journey begun by Dr. King and his many followers has not been an easy one. But every journey starts with a single step and the best ones include a dream of where the journey will lead. In the spirit of the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s speech, the Regional English Language Office at the U.S. Embassy Kyiv would like to invite students in Ukraine to share their dream for their country with us. Please write an essay (in English) on “I Have a Dream for Ukraine.” We will read your essays and invite five entrants to read their speeches at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv on August 28, 2013. Selection of speeches will be based on the originality and creativity of your Ukrainian Dream. Dreams and words have the power to change the world. We want to hear yours!

The contest is open for all Ukrainian students between the ages of 14-22.

Submit your essay by August 15, 2013 (1000 words or less) and any questions or comments to:

KyivRELO@state.gov

Represent Your US University at the EducationUSA Alumni Education Fairs in Donetsk and Ivano-Frankivsk


Dear Alumni of U.S. Universities,

Would you like to represent your U.S. alma mater in Ukraine?  Share your U.S. university experience with Ukrainians? Guide interested young people to a rich and rewarding educational experience in the U.S.? It's easy!

WHO: Alumni (American or Ukrainian) of U.S. higher education institutions

WHAT: EducationUSA Alumni/Higher Education Fair
An EducationUSA alumni education fair will be organized in Donetsk on Wednesday, April 3 from 2.30pm-7pm by the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv and the EducationUSA Advising Center at American Councils. A second education fair will be held in Ivano-Frankivsk in mid May, tentatively scheduled for May 16.  While traditional EducationUSA fairs involve representatives of U.S. universities traveling to various countries to recruit students, the alumni fair model allows EducationUSA to reach out to host country nationals on a grassroots level by involving Ukrainian alumni of U.S. universities, U.S. foreign service officers and family members, Peace Corps Volunteers and others who have studied in the U.S. to share their experience in the U.S. higher education system.


WHEN:  NOW!
is the time to express interest in participating so that the shipment of recruitment materials from your alma mater can be arranged in time for the fair itself.  The deadline for signing up is March 25 to allow for shipping time.

WHERE: Donetsk (Venue TBD) and Ivano Frankivsk (Venue TBD)

WHY: Why not?
Participating in the alumni fair will take only a few hours of your time, but you will accomplish a lot.  You will not only will help support the education outreach goals of the U.S. Embassy and EducationUSA, you'll also get to meet a lot of bright, eager Ukrainians.  (You don't need to be an expert on your university--just a willing cheerleader!  Also, you don't need to prepare any materials, since we will request them on your behalf.)
HOW: Register online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AlumniUkraine2013 as soon as possible--preferably by March 25. We will use the details you provide to solicit materials from your school in the U.S. and we need to leave time for shipping.

Feel free to be in touch with me with questions about this opportunity.  To learn more about EducationUSA in Ukraine, visiteducationusa.info/Ukraine.
