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 students Banks Vadeboncoeur & Nikki Walton from Alice B. Landrum Middle School in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida won 3rd Prize for their documentary, "Racial Inequality in the Health Care System." The team will share $750 in prize money.

C-SPAN is funded by America’s cable and satellite television companies, who also support StudentCam. In Ponte Vedra Beach, 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 Bill Ferry, Senior Director of External Affairs and Community Impact for Comcast in North Florida. "Comcast continues to be committed to strengthening our communities through educational programs, including our longstanding partnership with C-SPAN and StudentCam."
