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."

8th grader Theodore Poulin from Mill Middle School in Williamsville, New York won 3rd Prize in the Middle School division for his documentary, "Our World in Our Hands"

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

"Spectrum is committed to strengthening the communities where we live and work through educational programs like StudentCam,” said Adam Falk, Senior Vice President, State Government Affairs for Charter Communications, Inc. "We are proud of this partnership with C-SPAN that encourages students to think critically about the issues that affect our country and local community. Congratulations Theodore on the creativity demonstrated in this excellent work."
