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 students Nikhil Herdt & Jim Su from Valley High School in West Des Moines, Iowa won Honorable Mention for their documentary, "Gilded." They will share $250 in prize money for their win.
C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable and satellite television companies, who also support StudentCam. In Des Moines, C-SPAN is available locally through Mediacom.
