StudentCam 2019 - Winners

This year C-SPAN received 2,923 StudentCam documentaries from over 6,300 students representing 48 states and Washington, DC. Students addressed the theme, “What Does it Mean to be American?” and were tasked with choosing a constitutional right, national characteristic, or historic event and explaining how it defines the American experience. After much deliberation and multiple rounds of judging, we are thrilled to announce the 150 prize winning documentaries.

 

Prize winning filmmakers and teachers will be contacted via email with more information regarding their win. C-SPAN television network will air each of the second prize, first prize, and grand prize winning documentaries at 6:50am ET and throughout the day during the month of April. See below for the documentary air-dates of the top 21.

 

In our 15th year of competition we want to recognize that a large percentage of this year's students went well above and beyond the efforts of past participants. As judges, the incredible amount of effort that went into many of the productions was clearly evident. Some of you invested weeks or even months in planning, researching, filming, and editing your work. There were interviews with professors, lawyers, historians, a wide variety of elected officials, and many other experts. We sincerely enjoyed viewing each and every submission and hearing your perspectives on what being American means to you. Aside from prize recognition, we hope that you learned valuable technical and social skills, and gained confidence in expressing your point of view. You should be commended for your outstanding effort and even if you did not win one of the 150 prizes listed below, please check your email for an opportunity to receive a small gift in in the mail as a token of our appreciation.

 

Thank you again for participating and we hope those of you with remaining eligibility will consider participating in StudentCam 2020. Our new theme will be announced in July and the official competition launch will be at the beginning of the new school year. Congratulations to all!

 

Congratulations also to the 5 winners of our "Behind the Scenes" Photo Competition. Each of the 5 groups below will receive $100 for sharing photos of their StudentCam documentary production on social media:
