Blog it Home Contest

The Peace Corps’ Mission

To promote world peace and friendship by fulfilling three goals:

-To help the people of interested countries in meeting their need for trained men and women

-To help promote a better understanding of Americans on the part of the peoples served

-To help promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans

Many volunteers enjoy keeping a blog during their service to fulfill the third goal of the Peace Corps and share their experiences with people back home. Its become so popular the Peace Corps has started an annual competition called “Blog it Home,” and last week I found out my blog was selected as one of the finalists. The winners of the competition will win a trip to D.C. in October to share their blog and talk about using technology to share about their Peace Corps experience and host country. This final round depends on YOU and is based on public vote. If you enjoy following this blog please vote for me! All you have to do is click below to find my facebook entry and “like” the photo that comes up: https://www.facebook.com/peacecorps/photos/a.10153164370980914.1073741853.110634980913/10153164373525914/?type=1&theater

There are 20 blogs in the finals, selected from over 400 entries in total, from volunteers working in various different countries. You should check them out since there are many great stories and photos that demonstrate the similarities and differences of doing the Peace Corps dependent on the country you are in. Simply go to the Peace Corps’ Facebook page and look for the “Blog It Home” post.
