StudentCam Prize Winners

StudentCam is C-SPAN's annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think critically about issues that affect our communities and our nation. The competition, now in its 18th year, invited all middle and high school students to enter by producing a short documentary asking students to explore a federal policy or program and address the theme: "How does the federal government impact your life?"

11th grade students Lauren Cargal, Sophia Smith, & Jacob Shaddock from Jenks High School in Jenks, Oklahoma won 2nd Prize for their documentary on the importance of updated cybersecurity policy and legislation, "The Threat of Tomorrow." As 2nd Prize winners, the trio will share $1,500 in prize money.
