Are you a 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 Nicholas D. Kristof’s 2010 “win-a-trip” contest. For the fourth time, he’ll take a student with him on a reporting trip to Africa to cover issues of global poverty — and their solutions. Information about how to enter the contest is on his blog (nytimes.com/ontheground). To read the full article about this trip and previous trips go to http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/13/opinion/13kristof.html?_r=2.
