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.

10th grade students Samantha Jaffe, Eliana Finberg & Sophia Stein from Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland won 3rd Prize for their documentary, "Making it to Motherhood." The team will share $750 in prize money for their win.

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

"Despite the educational challenges students faced this school 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 Misty Allen, Vice President of Government and Community Affairs for Comcast’s Beltway Region. "Comcast always looks forward to working with longstanding partners like C-SPAN and StudentCam to strengthen our communities through educational programs.”
