Offer: Win-a-Trip 2012 with Pulitzer Prize Winning Columnist Nicholas Kristof (University Students)

Announcing Win-a-Trip 2012
By NICHOLAS KRISTOF

My Sunday column is devoted to my annual humanitarian holiday guide, but it also notes that I’m now accepting entries for Win-a-Trip 2012. In the past, I’ve occasionally taken more than one person (such as a member of the over-60 crowd last year), but this year it’ll be just a university student. So here’s how to enter the contest.

You can apply either with an essay of up to 700 words, or a video of up to three minutes, or both. Send the essay to winatrip@nytimes.com. Post the video on my YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/NicholasKristof, next to my own video invitation for applications. In either case, explain why I should pick you.

So what kind of a person am I looking for? The truth is, I’m not entirely sure – except that I want someone with excellent communication skills, who can blog and vlog (video blog) in ways that will capture the interest of other readers. If you’ve done blogging, vlogging or journalism, be sure to mention that — in sparkling prose! Ditto for anything else that makes you special or will make your voice more memorable.
