Cultural Care Au Pair Video Contest Winners Announced!

Since Cultural Care Au Pair’s Video Contest was launched on April 14th, we received more than 40 wonderful  submissions from our host families and au pairs. We have seen  tear jerkers, comedies, and fairy tales. We learned about how au pairs  improve the quality of life for single moms, busy working families,  families with multiples and many more.   Now that the contest  has officially closed, please join me in congratulating the most-voted  for videos and the big winners in our first-ever Cultural Care Au Pair  Video Contest!
