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 visit what looks like a country manor - but is actually America's nicest homeless shelter. One look and you'll wonder why anyone would leave?

Or, would you rather send Steve to the Lickety Split Chocolate Factory. It's a kid's paradise - lots of chocolate and no grownups. In fact, the CEO is just 15.

Steve could meet a man who's been to the top of Mount Everest more times than anyone - but his real dream is much more down to earth. He could find out how Apa Sherpa and his family are making it in America.
