Are you a U.S. university student with a yearning to see the best and worst of the world?

Are you (reasonably) unruffled if you’re dive-bombed by insects the size of small planes while bouncing over ruts toward an interview with a warlord?

Then it’s time to apply for the Nicholas Kristof's 2010 “win-a-trip” contest. For the fourth time, he’ll take a student on a reporting trip to Africa to cover issues of global poverty — and their solutions.

It won’t be comfortable or glamorous. Maybe you’ll interview a president, but far more time will be spent squatting in thatch-roof huts, listening to villagers. This contest reflects Kristof's conviction that the best way to open minds and hearts to the world’s challenges is to see them, hear them, smell them.

Information about how to enter the contest is on Kristof's blog (

If you win, you won’t be practicing tourism, but journalism. You’ll blog and file videos for, and you’ll bring a powerful reporting credential that Kristof can’t: fresh eyes.

Good luck!!

Oh my this sounds amazing.

Oh my this sounds amazing. But at the same time, is this the way it really works? I almost wonder... going through larger organizations limits what you can see or the opposite.... or both. Either way, thank you for posting this. I am so tempted (and probably will after I submit this message) to visit this site, though what would you do in a situation of having a small child and definitely not needing to bring her to the "worst of the world" (mind you to some extent and age). Cheers and excuse me for my many babbles of thoughts throughout this message :) Just excited
