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 Lillian Mirosavich from Richland Northeast High School in Columbia, South Carolina won 3rd Prize for her documentary, "I AM His Voice: Exposing Gun Violence in America."

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

"“At Spectrum, we understand the importance of investing in programs that make a meaningful impact in the communities we serve,” said Adam Falk, Senior Vice President of State Government Affairs for Charter Communications, which operates the Spectrum brand of connectivity services. “By encouraging young adults to explore important issues through video, C-SPAN’s StudentCam competition helps empower future generations to become active and informed citizens. We congratulate Lillian for the exemplary production skills and the passion and creativity she demonstrated in her winning documentary.”
