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.

12th grade student James Shiang from Winchester High School in Massachusetts won 3rd Prize for his documentary, "Saving Students from Substantial Debt." James will receive $750 in prize money for his win.

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

"Comcast is proud to continue our partnership with C-SPAN on their annual StudentCam competition," said Tim Kelly, Vice President of Government Affairs for Comcast’s Greater Boston Region. "The caliber of work that these winning students produced is commendable and we offer our heartfelt congratulations.”
