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."
Students Aaron Siebert & Michael Thompson from Jenks High School in Oklahoma won 3rd Prize in the High School Central division for their documentary, "The Cracks in Our Foundations".
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.
"Congratulations to our local winners on their hard work, creativity and well-deserved recognition,” said Percy Kirk, SVP and Region Manager, Cox Communications. "Cox is committed to strengthening our communities through educational programs and we are proud to partner with C-SPAN in its mission to encourage students to think critically about issues that affect our country.”
