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?"

8th grade students Felicia Curtis, Coco Shen, & Ellie Epstein from Nashoba Brooks School in Concord, Massachusetts won 3rd Prize for their documentary on school safety and gun violence, "Not Me."

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

“Comcast is proud to continue the tradition of partnering with C-SPAN to get middle and high school students interested and engaged in the political process through StudentCam,” said Tim Kelly, Vice President of Government Affairs for Comcast’s Greater Boston Region. “Congratulations to these winning students on the hard work and creativity it took to produce this award-winning documentary.”
