WHAT IS “C-SPAN StudentCam”?
C-SPAN StudentCam is an annual documentary competition. Students are asked to create a short (5 to 8 minutes) video documentary that explores an issue of national significance that they believe is in need of urgent attention from the new president of the United States.
StudentCam is open to all middle school students (grades 6-8) and high school students (grades 9-12) in the United States as individuals, or teams of 3 students. The competition is also open to international students and there will be one $500 prize for the best international entry. Videos must be the original work of students, however, teachers may provide guidance and critiques.
Your documentary should include more than one point of view. YOU MUST USE C-SPAN PROGRAMMING TO ENHANCE YOUR DOCUMENTARY. Videos that do not use C-SPAN programming will be disqualified.
ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED IN THE C-SPAN OFFICES by Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.
