Assignment America


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

Someone caught a huge bass last week in California - and then threw it back. Want to go fishing for a world record?

Or you can send Steve to meet a woman who was the first and only black student in her high school. Now, almost 50 years later, she's going back. She'll be getting the key to the city and reuniting with one of the only true friends she had there.

Go ahead, draw doodles in class. Steve could take us to America's first-ever cartoon college. It's already grinding out some of the best cartoonists in the business.
