C-SPAN is asking students to submit entries to the 2010 StudentCam video documentary competitions, showcasing what national issues are on their minds of students. The national competition invites all middle school students – grades six through eight – and high school students – grades nine through 12 – to produce a five to eight minute video documentary using C-SPAN programming.
Students should produce a documentary on one of the country’s greatest strengths or a challenge the country is facing.
A total of $50,000 will be awarded in cash prizes, which includes 75 student awards and 11 teacher awards. The Grand Prize winner with the best overall entry will be awarded $5,000, with multiple cash prize awards of $250, $500, $750, $1,500, and $3,000 to students in both middle and high school categories.
