International Day of Peace Contest 2021

September 21, is the globally celebrated International Day of Peace! Au Pair in America is excited to again announce a Peace Day Contest. The 2021 theme is “recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world.”

APIA celebrates peace by standing up against acts of hate online and off-line and by spreading compassion, kindness and hope as we recover and build a more beautiful and equitable world. Au Pairs are invited to submit their vision of “peace,” in whatever format they choose: a video, painting, photograph, poem, essay, song or dance.

Entries are due by Sunday, September 19, and should be submitted using the form below.

Important: If sending a photo with your host children, please have your host parent fill out the photo release form.
