Media Literacy Video Competition

The US Embassy in Latvia announces its annual video competition for high school students with a major prize for a four-week trip through the United States. This year's theme is "Media Literacy". We are waiting for young people in English about how they think about using media nowadays, how to think about who to believe, what not to, how to keep up with the topical issues of Latvia and the world, why it is so important, and so on. Videos should be submitted by February 22, 2018. There is more information about the competition in the attached poster.

Study of the United States Institutes

Study of the United States Institutes are intensive post-graduate level academic programs with integrated study tours whose purpose is to provide foreign university faculty, other scholars, and secondary educators (classroom teachers, teacher trainers, curriculum developers, textbook writers, ministry of educations officials, etc.) the opportunity to deepen their understanding of American society, culture, and institutions. The ultimate goal is to strengthen curricula and to improve the quality of teaching about the United States in academic institutions abroad.

The institutes will take place at various colleges and universities throughout the United States over the course of 5-6 weeks beginning in May/June 2018.
