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 Deanna Wilbourn, Annalise Ferrell & Savanna Phung from Madison Central High School in Mississippi won 3rd Prize for their documentary, "The Rise of Homelessness in Our Nation." The trio will share $750 in prize money.

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

"Comcast is proud to continue our partnership with C-SPAN on their annual StudentCam competition," said Jason Gumbs, Comcast Regional SVP. "The caliber of work that these students produced is commendable and we offer our heartfelt congratulations."
