Competitive? Wordy? This Essay Contest’s for You

November 4, 2007

Feelin’ lucky?

Hostelling International-USA and Earthchild Productions, producers of the award-winning documentary film “A Map for Saturday”, are sponsoring an essay contest for student travelers. The rules say:

“To enter, explain in 400 words or less why you deserve this ticket to the adventure of a lifetime. Why do you want to travel? Why is now the right time for you to go on such a trip and why haven’t you done it until now?

We’re looking for someone who will make the most of this opportunity and help articulate to others (through a travelblog, podcast, photos or video) the joys and challenges of long-term travel as they experience them.”

The deadline is November 30, 2007. That gives you less than a month, but the prize begins with a free round-the-world ticket, so it could be worth an hour of your time.
