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 students Rori Johnson & Jolie Abdo from Jenks High School in Oklahoma won 2nd Prize for their documentary about redlining and discriminatory housing policy, "The Line Between Us." As 2nd Prize winners, the duo will share $1,500 in prize money.

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.

"Cox is proud to continue our partnership with C-SPAN on their annual StudentCam competition," said Roger Ramseyer, Vice President and Region Manager for Cox Tulsa. "The caliber of work that these winning students produced is commendable and we offer our heartfelt congratulations."
