Vote for Katie Couric's next intern

CBS launches contest for the best student journalist. The prize: an unpaid internship for CBS Evening News.

CBS News is partnering with CBS Interactive to launch a contest for its next intern. Both undergrad and graduate student journalists are eligible to enter by uploading news copy or video to Springboard, a site launched specifically for the contest.

CBSNews.com and CBS News journalists will choose entries to share on the site and allow other students to comment on the contenders. From the pool, CBS will choose one student to be a full-time unpaid 2007 summer intern for the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. Students must be from U-Wire schools, schools that subscribe to the free U-Wire news service for colleges, in order to participate. The news stories and videos submitted must also be reports on the issue of global warming and climate change, the work of a local "social entrepreneur" or a profile of an Iraq war veteran. Entries will be accepted through April 6 and the winning student journalist will be announced on April 30.
