We invite all students who participated in study, internships, or research abroad over the past year to enter the 2014 Global Insights contest. We will award a $50 gift certificate to the Village Commons for each of the best three entries. Winning entries will be displayed prominently on campus and on our website.
Submit one photo and/or one video capturing a powerful insight you had into the world around us. Include a title and a description of no more than 100 words. Selection will be based on the photo/video itself and the accompanying statement. Entries are due by Friday, September 19.
Last year’s winner, Gabriella Crimi ‘15, submitted a photo taken in Gujarat, India.
“We too often forget that the bottle of honey we grab from a store’s shelf can be traced back to one farm, one family and one story. Five-year-old Satvakal and her father taught me the important lesson that food is much more significant than mere substance when I visited their rural village in Gujarat while interning at Under The Mango Tree. Beekeeper Bansubhai’s mango orchard has flourished with the help of his three bee boxes. This increase in agricultural productivity not only has affected his farm, but his family has prospered as well because the additional income allows him to invest in the wellness and education of his children.”
