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. This year students were asked to create a 5-6 minute long video exploring the issue they most want the president and new Congress to address in 2021.

8th grade student Will Morrison from the Davis Academy in Atlanta, Georgia won 2nd Prize for his documentary about COVID-19 and its effect on people with special needs, "The Missing Piece For Autism." As a 2nd Prize winner, Will has won $1,500 in prize money.

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

"Despite the educational challenges students faced this year, these local winners showed creativity, resourcefulness and a strong work ethic to create documentaries addressing important issues on both the local and national level," said Andy Macke, Vice President of External Affairs, Comcast South. "Comcast continues to be committed to strengthening our communities through educational programs, including our longstanding partnership with C-SPAN and StudentCam."
