Video Contest Honors Peace Corps

To honor the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps, a nonprofit group is holding a video contest with $4,000 in prize money.

Entrants should submit one- to two-minute videos that show how an active or former member of the Peace Corps, or the program as a whole, changed their lives. Submissions are due September 30.

“A video could be about a high-school teacher whose stories from overseas inspired you, or a volunteer whose service taught you new skills,” Erica Burman,
