How to Participate:

  1. Create a video demonstrating how you prepared and conducted the project that you developed during the exchange. Be creative: use photos, graphics and/or live footage to diversify your video. The video should clearly state the project goal; demonstrate the steps of project implementation; its impact on the local community; and provide feedback from the project participants. Videos can depict community service activities, workshops and trainings, eco camp activities, and/or conferences.
  2. Upload your video to YouTube.
  3. Post the link of your video here:


Every video submission must include:

Your video:

  • Should NOT contain any copyrighted material;
  • Must be no more than 3 minutes in length;
  • MUST avoid any profane language;
  • Should be in English or in Russian with English subtitles.

The video contest participant:

  • Must be a RYEP  alumnus/alumna;
  • Must be the creator of the video; (Other people may help you, but you should be the creator of the video.)
  • Can submit more than one video.

How to Win:

Contest winners will be selected by a panel made up of PH and Sustainable Learning staff.

Winning videos will be selected based on:

  •  How well the project is described;
  •  The amount of impact the project has/could have on the local community; and
  • How well the video encourages other young people to design and implement a similar project to make change happen in their community.

The top three videos will be awarded prizes.


Winners will receive prizes from Go Pro to a digital video camera and/or accessories to help alumni develop and improve upon their videography/photography skills.
