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. 2023 marked the 19th year of the competition and we invited middle and high school students to create a short documentary addressing the theme: "If you were a newly elected member of Congress, which issue would be your first priority and why?"

10th grade student Ethan Lee from Crystal Springs Uplands School in Hillsborough, California won 3rd Prize for his documentary on tackling the issue of homelessness, "A Place to Call Home."

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

"Comcast is honored to be continuing our long-standing partnership with C-SPAN and StudentCam, working to grow middle and high school students’ interest and engagement in the political process," said Beth Hester, Vice President of External Affairs at Comcast California. "A huge congratulations to the local winners for representing California. Your hard work and creativity make us proud."
