Applications from students in the St. Petersburg area looking to participate in the Cultural Exchange Program with Takamatsu, Japan, are being reviewed.
High school juniors seeking to apply as a Student Ambassador through the city's Sister City cultural exchange program had to submit an original essay, a class photo, a high school transcript listing honors and activities, and letters of reference, a release on the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce website said.
Student Ambassadors in the past have experienced what life is like in Takamatsu by living with a host family, going to high school and sightseeing. Former ambassadors have built on their experiences by studying international relations, international business or Japanese studies, the release said.
