Assignment America


Sorry, voting is now closed. The story with the most votes 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.

Steve could stop by an after-school program that's anything but average. Here, kids as young as 5 learn to rap - as in rap music. Their provocative lyrics deal with everything from milk to Girl Scout cookies. Wanna hear?

Or he could tell us the story of a man who's trying to make the world a better place - through hot dogs? Thousands and thousands of free hot dogs. Who's eating them all? Send Steve to find out.

As a kid, you may have collected coins or baseball cards. But 12-year-old Kyle Krichbaum collects...vacuum cleaners. He's got more than 100 uprights. Is he tidy or troubled? Send Steve to meet him.

Note: Please note that Anti Virus software installed on your computer can sometimes conflict with voting, to ensure a recorded vote you can temporarily disable your Anti Virus software. As always only your first vote counts.
