You could win a trip to the Yamaha Champions School -- and write about your experience in the pages of American Motorcyclist magazine.

Ever dream of writing for a motorcycle magazine? Think it’d be fun to get expert-level, on-track riding instruction at the Yamaha Champions School and tell others about your experiences online and in the pages of this magazine?

Have we got a deal for you!

In partnership with Yamaha and the Yamaha Champions School, we’re giving away a free trip to the school, based at Miller Motorsports Park near Salt Lake City, Utah, and the opportunity to write a story in this magazine detailing what you learned and what you thought of the experience. In addition, you’ll have a chance to star in your own internet video in your quest to go viral.

Interested? You must be an AMA member. You must have a valid motorcycle license. You must be available to take the Yamaha Champions School in the June timeframe. You must agree to be in video and write a story and be chosen for the assignment.

To be considered, you must submit the following in an e-mail and attachments to submissions@ama-cycle.org:

■Your name
■Your address
■Your AMA number
■A brief history of your motorcycle experience
■A 500-word essay or column on why you should attend the Yamaha Champions School and be chosen as American Motorcyclist’s Journalist for a day. You will be judged on creativity, persuasiveness and your ability to write creatively.
■A short video in quicktime, .mov or mpeg format (or a link to a video that’s already posted elsewhere) wherein you make your case for the job.
■Any other supporting materials you’d like to include.
Entry deadline is May 20. All entries become the property of the American Motorcyclist Association and may be made public, in print or on the Internet. Editors’ decisions on a winner are final and will be based on your creativity and how well you make the case that you should be American Motorcyclist’s moto-journalist for a day.
