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."

12th graders Savannah Cobb & Preston Affleck from Riverton High School in Utah won 3rd Prize in the High School Western division for their documentary, "Modern Marketplaces of Ideas: Are they a threat to Democracy?"

C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable and satellite television companies, who also support StudentCam. In Riverton, C-SPAN is available locally through Comcast.
