Middle school and high school students can compete for up to $100,000 in a contest sponsored by C-SPAN, by producing a documentary on what it means to be an American.

The documentary videos entered into the Student-Cam competition should be five or six minutes in length and focus on areas such as constitutional rights or historic events, explaining how the right or event defines the American experience.
