Global Education Day (GED) is one day that is set aside especially for school children during the Columbia International Festival to educate them about the variety of cultures that are represented in South Carolina. Students of all levels are invited to attend GED but it is expected those students in grades 3-10 will benefit the most from the experience.

Incorporating both fun and learning, GED gives educators and parents an opportunity to open the eyes of their students, not only to the richness of our world but also to the ethnic diversity of South Carolina and to the positive contributions being made by foreign-born citizens. This one day event focuses on enhancing South Carolina’s educational standards in Social Studies,  Foreign Languages and the Arts. Click on the tabs to see a sample of some applied standards.
