StudentCam is a video documentary competition that invites students to identify a current political topic of national interest and produce a ten minute or less video documentary which creatively explores the issue, while also integrating C-SPAN programming. The annual documentary competition for middle and high school students is a great way to get students engaged in exploring key issues during a presidential election year!
Entries are due by December 31, 2007 and a grand prize of $5,000 will be awarded in February 2008 to the best overall entry. Winning student videos may also air on the C-SPAN networks.
