STS Foundation Global School Award

Only by working hand-in-hand with American high schools can we provide the life-changing experience of cultural exchange and create the global citizens of tomorrow. The STS Foundation Global School Award was created to recognize the schools that go above and beyond to contribute to our mission of fostering mutual understanding and empowering young people through cultural exchange.

How it works:


Exchange students currently enrolled in the STS Foundation High School Exchange program are invited to nominate their school for the Global School Award by completing the form on this page and submitting either an essay or video showcasing why they think their school should be recognized with the STS Foundation Global School Award. Please read below for more information on what to include in your nomination.



What to include in a nomination:


  • Essay nominations: Write a 500-1,000 word essay highlighting how your school has supported you as an exchange student. Your essay could include quotes from your teachers, fellow schoolmates, coaches, and anyone else at school who has had a positive impact on your experience. Feel free to share photos with your essay submission.

  • Video nomination: Create a 1-3 minute video showcasing your school and the role it has played in your exchange year. Your video could include interviews with your teachers, fellow schoolmates, coaches, and anyone else at school who has had a positive impact on your experience.


Nominations are due by Tuesday, April 16th at 11.59 pm Pacific Time. To thank you for recognizing your school, STS Foundation will gift you a $10 Starbucks Gift Card* for your nomination. The winning school will be determined by STS Foundation and awarded a personalized plaque in recognition of their commitment to cultural exchange.
