Au Pair of the Year 2013 Contest Now Open!


1 minute

It's time for the InterExchange Au Pair of the Year 2013 Contest! Every year we recognize one InterExchange au pair who demonstrates the best qualities of the InterExchange Au Pair USA program.

We're looking for stories of au pairs who have contributed to the family as a team player during the program. Did she easily adapt to your family's personalities, schedule and lifestyle? Did he introduce customs from his country to add to your family's own traditions? What else did your au pair do to support the development of your family's team?

If your story wins, your au pair could become the InterExchange Au Pair of the Year for 2013! The winning prize for the au pair is a trip to Chicago, IL during the 2013 InterExchange Au Pair USA Conference in November, plus $200 spending money!

We love hearing from both the au pair and the host family, so we encourage you to work together as a team and even submit joint essays with information from both the au pair and your family!

To enter, submit a 400-850 word essay detailing how your au pair worked together with your family during the au pair program and how you have benefited from hosting an international au pair. This contest is open to any au pair still living and working with the host family as of November 6, 2013. All essays must be received by InterExchange no later than 11:59 p.m. EST on September, 30, 2013. Read the Au Pair of the Year official rules and enter to win!
