Study Travel Star Awards 2016 – Voting Is Now Open!
March 1, 2016
Posted in News
Time goes by so fast! The 11th Study Travel Star Awards for International Education by Study Travel Magazine are already here! At Stepwest, thanks to the support of our partners around the world and the great Working Holiday in Canada jobs and Internships in Canada that we provide, we were shortlisted as one of the Top 5 Star Work Experience Providers two years in a row in both 2014 and 2015!
For those who are unfamiliar, the Study Travel Star Awards is an annual industry event in which peer-voted awards are given out to companies who have shown excellence among over 800 top companies in the study travel industry from around the world. These awards are significant because they help to acknowledge the important connections between the organizations that offer top international education and work experiences and the organizations that help to send international youth abroad for these experiences.
Stepwest is super excited to participate in the ST Star Awards again this year and being back up for nomination, but we are also excited because we have a new accomplishment to walk into the nomination period with. For those who aren’t aware yet, Stepwest was recently designated as a “Recognized Organization (RO)” by Citizenship and Immigration Canada via International Experience Canada (IEC). We were able to obtain this coveted status by going through a rigorous application process and passing the requirements set by the Canadian government. This means that we are now able to offer our Working Holiday in Canada and Internship in Canada programs to even more participants from around the world! The designation is a big step for the growth of Stepwest, and it would be even better if we were awarded a ST Star Award this year too! Nomination period goes from Feb 8, 2016 to April 29, 2016 and the top 5 companies with the largest number of votes get on the official nominees list. Partner agents – please vote for us for ST Star Work Experience Provider! We are really looking forward to hopefully being on the nominees list for a third year in a row!
To close off, we are incredibly grateful for the support that we have received in previous years from our agent partners. We feel very lucky to be able to work with such amazing organizations from all over the world. It’s been wonderful to be able to help international youth obtain an unforgettable Work and Travel or Education experience through our Working Holiday in Canada, Internship in Canada and Education & Work Experience in Canada programs. Although we would really like to be nominated again this year for the Top 5 ST Star Work Experience Providers 2016, in the end we are just happy to be a part of this industry event again, as we are rewarded every day by seeing our participants have life changing experiences via Work and Travel in Canada or an Education in Canada! We want to wish the best of luck to all the other organizations participating in the ST Star Awards this year. As always, we can’t wait to see the results!
