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.

10th grade student Soleil Lopez from Winter Park High School in Florida won 3rd Prize for her documentary, "Systemic Racism: The Elephant in the Room." Soleil will receive $750 in prize money.

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

"Spectrum is committed to strengthening the communities where we live and work through unique educational programs like C-SPAN’s StudentCam competition," said Adam Falk, Senior Vice President, State Government Affairs for Charter Communications, Inc., which operates the Spectrum brand of TV, internet, mobile and voice services. "These students have not only adapted to the numerous educational challenges this year, but have risen above those difficulties to create thought provoking documentaries. Charter would like to congratulate all the recipients on receiving this honor."
