Imagine a summer internship where you get to travel for free around the country hiking, rafting, and enjoying the outdoors. Sounds great, right? Suppose it also included a $2,500 stipend and $2,000 worth of gear from The North Face and Planet Explore?

All right, stop imagining and start applying -- because it's for real!The Sierra Club's Outdoors Youth Ambassador intern will spend eight weeks this summer on different Sierra Club outings sponsored by our Inner City Outings, Building Bridges to the Outdoors, and Volunteer Vacations programs while video blogging the experience.

The application deadline is March 31, and all you have to do is answer some questions in a short online form and upload a video of 90 seconds or less in which you tell us why you're the best person for the internship.

You can learn about what we think is The Best Internship on Earth here. That's also where you'll find an FAQ, the application, and a link to the videos submitted so far.

Already have plans this summer? Then spread the word to anyone you know who could use a once-in-a-lifetime experience, because the application deadline is March 31.
