The winners will travel on a 6-day Costa Rica Unplugged trip with celebrated documentary film maker, adventurer and storyteller, Céline Cousteau, in April 2014.

Winners will visit Contiki Cares latest partnership – the Sea Turtle Conservancy Foundation – to learn about instrumental work in saving sea turtles from extinction. Furthermore, winners will receive a scholarship to the MatadorU online journalism program, apart from the opportunity to explore Costa Rican jungles and rainforests, beaches and oceans.
