American Bucket List Challenge

Daniel Seddiqui, author of 50 Jobs in 50 States: 
"2018 will be the 10 year anniversary of my journey of working 50 Jobs in 50 States. I published an international bestselling book on the venture and now it's currently in production for a major motion picture.

With continuous efforts of healing division in America, I've partnered with Airbnb to explore the many great cultures in America by revisiting all 50 states to experience unique activities/events.

We're hosting a National College Documentary Contest, where a selected large school in each state will film my experience, create a short film and submit it for voting.

I'm calling this the American Bucket List Challenge and it will be next Fall. For an interested film crew from KSU, I will be participating in the Dodge City Gun Show on Thursday August 30th. We expect this to be a one-day commitment of shooting, and then editing and final production by the end of the year."
