YouTube offers $10,000 contest for student journalists

YouTube and the Pulitzer Center are holding a contest that allows non-professional, aspiring journalists the chance to tell stories that might not otherwise be covered by traditional media.

The contest, dubbed "Project: Report," consists of three rounds. In each round, reporters will be given an assignment to complete. Each of these assignments gives people an opportunity to report on the important individuals, issues, and communities in their lives that others do not yet know about. You can compete is just one round, although only those who compete in all three will be eligible for the grand prize.

Winners from each round will receive technology prizes from Sony VAIO and Intel, and the grand prize winner will be granted a $10,000 journalism fellowship with the Pulitzer Center to report on a story outside of their home country.
