Two to Tell

It all starts with you!

The North Carolina Study Abroad Reentry Conference opens with short presentations by four students. Each will be given two minutes and six power point slides to tell us about their past global experiences.

The conference attendees vote for their favorite and the winners get a prize.

What are the prizes?

  • First place will receive a $75 cash prize!
  • Runners up will receive prizes that they can use on their next experience abroad.

How does it work?

Participants present 6 PowerPoint slides in a timed presentation. Each slide will appear for 20 seconds. Each contestant may talk about each individual slide or have a coherent text which does not accompany any individual slide. Because the slides are timed, it is often more effective to not focus on each slide individually. The text may be prose or poetry, a daily entry in a journal, an anthropological observation or a more journalistic text.

Entries can be emailed to: ncstudyabroadreentryconference@gmail.com

Deadline for entries is Monday, April 13th

Examples:

Here are three examples from Wofford College’s Two to Tell Competition. Wofford created the Two to Tell competition and has been offering the prize to its study abroad students for over three years.

Example 1   •   Example 2   •   Example 3

The deadline for submitting Two-to-Tell presentations will be April 3rd.
