Global Giveaway Sends Students Traveling Worldwide

students travel
In July 2012, People to People Ambassador Group sent students to Japan for the first time since the devastating earthquake and tsunami hit in 2011. Partnering with MTV, People to People also ran an Act for Japan contest to give away one full tuition travel scholarship. Now the organization is partnering with actress Holly Robinson Peete to award five students with travel scholarships to participate on a People to People adventure.

Holly's Global Giveaway will send the winners to a destination of their choice including a journey to Australia, England, France, Italy, India, China or even Antarctica.

This contest is still open, but not for long, as three out of five students have already been chosen. Submit your entry to tell People to People why you should join Holly's Global Trekkers and see the world as a student ambassador by January 31, 2013.
Peete, also a mother of four, experienced first-hand the positive impact global travel and study abroad can have on a student, and plans to send two of her own children on a People to People trip this summer.

"I had the opportunity to study abroad at a young age and I believe it is a critical component to ensuring our kids can compete in a globalized world," said Holly Robinson Peete in a Marketwatch report. "I look forward to allowing my children the same life experience and working with People to People to send five deserving students on the trip of a lifetime."

That's why she's partnered with People to People Student Ambassador Programs to give two lucky students an all-expenses paid international travel experience they'll never forget.

Three of the five scholarships have already been awarded during Holly's recent appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show." These students were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Since Williams is from New Jersey, People to People wanted to help lift the spirits of these kids around the holidays.
