World leaders will gather next week in Copenhagen to discuss and (hopefully) sign a new climate treaty. But politicians won't be the only people present. We're sending two of our own to cover the historic event — and you can help send a third. Here's the scoop:

  • Our blogger Karl Burkart will be reporting live from Copenhagen next week. Check out his blog to stay updated.
  • Mary Shindler is a philosophy major at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. Follow her journey on her blog.
  • Another one of our student correspondents, Divina Baratta, is vying to be the winner of the Hopenhagen Ambassador contest which will send her to Copenhagen. She needs your vote now.
