KidVid Contest

The KidVid Contest is organized and managed by the FSI Transition Center's Overseas Briefing Center (OBC).  

The purpose of this contest is to develop a library of videos that will help FS families anticipate what life is like from a kid's perspective at overseas posts.  

CLO and parents at post:  Please consider providing encouragement and assistance to children at your post.  This contest is a great way to highlight your post.  Moreover, a more extensive library of KidVids will benefit all FS families.  

Completed videos are available for Foreign Service families to view on:
  • State Department intranet
  • In person at the OBC library at FSI
  • online at in the Members Only section for FSYF members

Eligibility:  Foreign Service youth, ages 10-18 who are posted overseas, are eligible to enter this contest.  FSYF membership is not required to enter.
