We are delighted to announce the winners of our 2019 Au Pair Community Service Awards! Through these awards, Au Pair in America celebrates au pairs making a difference through volunteer work—in addition to their roles as child care providers, students and cultural ambassadors.
Each year, we are truly inspired by our au pairs who have tirelessly volunteered their time to give back to their communities. We look forward to reading about their experiences each spring!
The Grand Prize Winners for the 2019 Au Pair Community Service Awards are:
1st Place: Martyna Nowacka
Martyna is an au pair from the United Kingdom living with a host family in Washington, D.C. She served her community as a tour guide in the nation’s capital.
2nd Place: Alexandra Elias
Alexandra is an au pair from Hungary living with a host family in Hawaii. She dedicated countless hours of her time picking up plastic and other debris from the beaches and parks of Oahu.
3rd Place: Lina Motta Barrera
Lina is an au pair from Colombia living with a host family in Connecticut. Through a local non-profit organization, Lina educated immigrants in her community about importance and logistics of recycling.
In addition to the three Grand Prize Winners featured above, Au Pair in America awarded several state winners at the local level.
It is an honor to acknowledge—and celebrate—the talent and dedication of our au pairs who have so selflessly dedicated their time to the causes most dear to them. Thanks to all of the au pairs who shared their stories about volunteering across America, and congratulations to this year’s winners!
