The winners will travel with Nick through some of the more remote parts of Africa, interviewing among others, doctors, peasants, and community leaders. This will be the second such trip that Kristof has taken. Last summer Mississippi student Casey Parks was the lucky winner and she started her trip in Equatorial Guinea, not a country on the normal tourist trail. Nick can't guarantee a set itinerary, nor what may happen on the trip, but all expenses will be paid including flights, food, visas and some form of accommodation.
I highly encourage everyone who qualifies to take up this offer. Two weeks on a trip like this will change your life, broaden your mind and undoubtedly make you a better person. The deadline for applications is April 6 (2007).
