StudentCam - 2020 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 in grades 6-12 were asked to create a short (5-6 minute) video documentary on a topic related to the competition theme, "What's Your Vision in 2020? Explore the issue you most want presidential candidates to address during the campaign."

10th grade students Jolie Abdo, Abby Vaughn & Audrey McGee from Jenks High School in Oklahoma won 2nd Prize in the High School Central division for their documentary on the inequities in the college admissions process, "Leveling the Playing Field".

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

"Congratulations to our local winners on their hard work, creativity and well-deserved recognition,” said Percy Kirk, SVP and Region Manager, Cox Communications. "Cox is committed to strengthening our communities through educational programs and we are proud to partner with C-SPAN in its mission to encourage students to think critically about issues that affect our country.”
