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."
11th grade students Arjun Agarwal from Lawrence High School and John Weaver from the Lawrenceville School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey won 3rd Prize in the High School Eastern division for their documentary, "Fighting Corporate Confusion and Corruption: A Vision for a Cleaner Future."
C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable television companies, whom also support StudentCam. In Lawrenceville, C-SPAN is available locally through Comcast.
"Comcast congratulates, Arjun Agarwal and John Weaver, our local winners of C-SPAN’s annual documentary contest, StudentCam. We are proud to partner with C-SPAN to offer this educational opportunity focused on strengthening our democracy and giving young leaders a forum for sharing their insights about issues that affect our country," said Stephanie L. Kosta, Vice President of Government Affairs, Comcast Freedom Region.
