StudentCam - 2020 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. This year students in grades 6-12 were asked to create a short (5-6 minute) video documentary on a topic related to the competition theme, "What's Your Vision in 2020? Explore the issue you most want presidential candidates to address during the campaign."

11th grade students Reilyn Hilton, Colin Boudreaux & Trevor Jones from Sam Houston High School in Lake Charles, Louisiana won 3rd Prize in the High School Central division for their documentary, "Prescription Drug Prices."

C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable television companies, whom also support StudentCam. In Lake Charles, C-SPAN is available locally through Suddenlink.

"Congratulations to our local winners on their hard work, creativity and well-deserved recognition,” said Lee Schroeder, Executive Vice President, Government & Community Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer at Altice USA (parent company of Suddenlink). “We are committed to strengthening our communities through educational programs and we are proud to partner with C-SPAN in its mission to encourage students to think critically about issues that affect our country.”
