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 Benjamin Kwait-Gonchar from Brooklyn Technical High School in New York won Honorable Mention for his documentary, "Renewing America's Commitment to Science in the 21st Century." He will receive $250 in prize money for his win.
C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable and satellite television companies, who also support StudentCam. In the Brooklyn, C-SPAN is available locally through Spectrum.
