Nominate your Au Pair for the “Au Pair of the year” award

We have received so much exceptional feedback from host families this year, we would love these families to nominate their amazing au pair for our Au Pair of the Year Award!

Your nomination should consist of an essay written by your family host family, describing the characteristics that make your au pair exceptional. The essay should be between 500-850 words (approximately 1 page). The essay should only describe the experience, without referring to the name of our agency or our service.

IAPA (International Au Pair Association), the host of the contest is looking for compelling reasons why you believe your au pair is exceptional.
• To ensure fairness and objectivity by the IAPA selection panel, the names of the au pair and the sending/receiving organisation/s will not appear on contest entries.
• All contest entries will become property of the International Au Pair Association, including rights to edit and publish the material.
The winning au pair will be notified by IAPA.
