STA Travel, the world leader in student travel, has teamed up to help MTV Networks to find young travelers who are planning to backpack through Europe this summer. MTV's "True Life," an award-winning series that covers a range of topics relevant to today's youth from social issues to pop culture trends, is filming a documentary about backpacking through Europe and searching for travelers who would be interested in sharing their experiences with a television audience.

Candidates must be between the ages of 18 and 25 and already planning to travel between May and July 2003. If you are willing to be filmed throughout your travel adventures, you are eligible. Please send a photo and answers to the following four questions about your trip:

1)What is the purpose of your trip (self-discovery, transition)?
2)What are your travel plans? (countries you will visit, budget)?
3)Where are you in the planning process?
4)What makes your backpacking adventure unique?

Please email a photo and written materials to mtvcasting@statravel.com, your local STA Travel branch or to MTV Casting Call C/O STA Travel at 5900 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 900, Los Angeles, CA 90036. Deadline is April 18th.
