University of Notre Dame junior Nicole Sganga will be going on assignment with Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Nick Kristof this summer, The New York Times announced Sunday, March 16.
Sganga is the winner of Kristof’s annual “Win A Trip with Nick” contest. Her prize is traveling with the Times’ columnist to a developing country to raise awareness about global poverty. During the trip, she will report for a blog and videos that will be published on The New York Times website.
“Nicole is a terrific journalist-in-the-making, and I’m impressed by how much she has been able to do on the side from London to Washington while earning top grades at Notre Dame,” Kristof says. “I’m looking for a student who is going to be able to produce compelling blogs and videos to engage other young people around the world, and Nicole will be superb at that. I can’t wait to see her work from the field.”
