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.

11th grade student Agamroop Kaur from Dougherty Valley High School in San Ramon, California won 2nd Prize for her documentary about youth vaping, "BIG Tobacco BIGGER Epidemic." As a 2nd Prize winner, Agamroop has won $1,500 in prize money.

C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable and satellite television companies, who also support StudentCam. In San Ramon, 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 Beth Hester, Vice President of External Affairs, Comcast California. "Comcast continues to be committed to strengthening our communities through educational programs, including our longstanding partnership with C-SPAN and StudentCam."
