StudentCam - 2020 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. This year students in grades 6-12 were asked to create a short (5-6 minute) video documentary on a topic related to the competition theme, "What's Your Vision in 2020? Explore the issue you most want presidential candidates to address during the campaign."

12th grade students Isabella Machalk, Jocelyn Hobbs & Madison Daniels from Milan High School in Michigan won 2nd Prize in the High School Central division for their documentary on the opioid crisis, "Prescribed Dependence".

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