2021 ICES Video Contest Winners


For our exchange students, spring is the time to reflect back on their exchange: the experiences, adventures, and life lessons.  It's a time to remember the people, places, and events that have made their exchange so valuable.

Each spring, ICES encourages students to get their creative juices flowing and share their exchange year with us in an original video.  And now we are delighted to share the winning videos with you!  So grab a cup of coffee or a bowl of popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the stories of these awesome teens.

Exchange students aren’t the only ones who look back on the year with joy and gratitude. For every exchange student, there is a host family who shares the wonderful experience of learning, growing, and sharing.   The adventure of being a host family is unique and wonderful!

We have many students coming this fall who are still waiting for host families, and chances are one of them is just the right fit to help your family have the experience of a lifetime.
