Assignment America


Sorry, voting is now closed. The winning story will be revealed Monday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on the CBS Evening News. And tune in to catch Steve Hartman's report on Friday.

Send Steve to meet Fernando and Fernando. They both live in the same tiny town, they're both in the same grade - and they're both nationally ranked chess players. What's in the water there?

Or he could visit a new cafe with no prices. It's up to the customers to decide how much to pay - if anything. Is this a genius social experiment? Or a really dumb business plan?

Steve could introduce us to Diane Sadovnikov, a woman who has arranged adoptions for many, many families. But she's dying of cancer, so now she's arranging the hardest adoption of all - her own children.
