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.

The town of Truman, Minn., was about to lose its only grocery store - until a local high school kid stepped-up and bought the place. A high school kid! How did he pull it off? Send Steve to find out.

Or Steve could meet the woman who bowled a 244 - not terribly impressive until you hear she's 94 … and legally blind.

Steve could introduce us to the Dad Of The Century. Over the past four decades, this guy has taken in well over 100 foster kids. Most have gone on to successful careers and happy families of their own - and they pretty much all credit this one man.
