StudentCam is C-SPAN’s national video documentary competition encouraging students to think critically about issues that affect their communities and the nation. This year students in grades 6–12 are asked to create a short (five- to six-minute) video documentary on a topic related to the theme What’s Your Vision in 2020? Students are invited to explore the issue they most want presidential candidates to address during the campaign. Students may compete individually or in teams of two or three members. Students’ documentaries must include clips of supporting or opposing C-SPAN video related to their chosen topic. C-SPAN will award cash prizes totaling $100,000 to 150 individuals or teams for their documentaries, and more than 50 teacher advisers. Interested applicants will find additional details about this grant on GetEdFunding, a website sponsored by CDW•G with access to a free database of thousands of funding opportunities for educators.
Deadline: Entry form should be submitted, and entries uploaded, by January 20, 2020.
