One iReporter from each campus will win a digital video camera and have the chance to win a trip for two to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans!

Here's how it works...

1. Send us your iReport (1 to 10 minutes in length) addressing one of the following topics:


  • HIV, AIDS and STDs in the black community.
  • Role of HBCUs in higher education- why chose an HBCU over any other college or university?
  • State of Education and should kids be paid to learn?
  • Single Parent Families, 7 out of every 10 black children are born to a single mother
  • Black and Single, 45% of all black women have never been married, and the higher their education, the greater that number.
  • What does it mean to be “Black in America”?

2. Your entry must include an introduction including your name and your school name.

 

3. Together with the NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists), one Campus iReporter will be selected from each school to win a digital video camera and use their camera to capture the experiences of their campus' Black in America Tour Stop.

4. Campus iReporters will then submit a second iReport documenting the experiences of their campus' Black in America Tour Stop for a chance to win the Grand Prize- a trip for two to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans!
