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. This year students were asked to create a 5-6 minute long video exploring the issue they most want the president and new Congress to address in 2021.

11th grade students Alan Zhou & Kyler Wang from Sunset High School and Lincoln High School in Portland, Oregon won 2nd Prize for their documentary about political division and partisanship, "Finding Common Ground." As 2nd Prize winners, the duo will share $1,500 in prize money.

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

"Despite the educational challenges students faced this year, these local winners showed creativity, resourcefulness and a strong work ethic to create documentaries addressing important issues on both the local and national level," said Rebecca Brown, Director of Community Impact in Oregon and SW Washington. "Comcast continues to be committed to strengthening our communities through educational programs, including our longstanding partnership with C-SPAN and StudentCam."
