I WON!!!!


Dear Sarah Jean,

Congratulations!  You have been selected as a winner in the 3nd annual Blog It Home contest.  You have been recognized by Peace Corps, your peers and people around the world as being an exceptional steward of the Third Goal.  From August 3-10, the competition reached more than 670,000 people on Facebook and more than 20,000 votes were cast.

Of the 400+ blog submissions we received from Peace Corps Volunteers around the world, we selected 8 winning blogs. We’re happy to report yours is one of them. 

We look forward to welcoming you and your fellow winners to Washington D.C. from October 4-10 for a special Peace Corps Top Bloggers Tour coordinated in your honor.  Over the course of the week, you will promote the Third Goal in a series of intercultural presentations to diverse audiences, have professional development opportunities and participate in general celebrations. 

In the coming days, we will send you a comprehensive email detailing logistics for your trip. We will also be issuing a press release to share the good news and highlight you and the other winners of this contest.   

Please stay tuned for more details.  We’re very excited to meet you in October!
