On YouTube, I recently caught a video describing how a college student can "Win A Trip with Nick Kristof," in which the student will go to Africa with him and explore the many causes and solutions to global poverty.
Here is the video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoXY8S4iknE
As described in the copy on YouTube, "New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof invites college students to win a trip to Africa with him. The winner will report, blog and vlog from the field. To apply, upload a video response here or submit an essay."

The contest ends at midnight on Friday, Feb. 13, 2009.
