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?"

11th grade students Hendrik DuBois, Waleed Zainatieh, & Jaxon Smith from Jenks High School in Oklahoma won 3rd Prize for their documentary on domestic energy infrastructure and environmental concerns, "Pipelines: Protecting America's Veins."

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