Project: Report 2010 is a partnership between YouTube and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting...

In 2010 the Pulitzer Center partnered with YouTube on Project: Report, a contest for aspiring reporters, with support from Sony Intel. The five grand-prize winners received travel grants to report on an under-reported international story. They have begun work on their projects, which will be featured on the Pulitzer Center's website and YouTube channel.

Samantha Danis impressed us last spring with her moving piece on the challenges facing the deaf community in Maine. Now she is traveling to Belize to report on maternal mortality and how the country is dealing with the challenge.

Alex Rozier profiled a Missouri man dedicated to providing personal energy transportation devices (PETs) to the disabled poor overseas. Now he covers the other side of the story in Guatemala, where the devices have revolutionized the lives of the immobile.

Paul Franz chronicled the plight of Haitian migrant workers in Florida. This time he reports on the need for education reform in Haiti in the aftermath of January's devastating earthquake.

Elan Gepner showed us how community programs are helping students combat violence. He now travels to Brazil to explore how non-governmental organizations there are finding creative ways to empower the country's impoverished youth.

And Mark Jeevaratnam , who explored the effects of mountain top removal mining in Kentucky, reports on how soccer may have the potential to improve the lives of South African youths.
