StudentCam - 2020 Winners

This year C-SPAN received documentaries from over 5,300 students representing 44 states and Washington, DC. Students addressed the theme, “What's Your Vision in 2020?” and were tasked with creating a 5-6 minute-long video on the issue they most want the presidential candidates to address. After much deliberation and multiple rounds of judging, we are thrilled to announce this year's 150 prize winning documentaries.

 

The student filmmakers and their teachers will be contacted via email with more information regarding their winning entry. 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.

 

Now in our 16th year of competition, we want to recognize the extraordinary work of all who participated this year. 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. As judges, we learned a lot about the wide variety of topics that you and your peers are passionate about, and we sincerely enjoyed viewing each and every submission. 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 to all who participated this year and we hope those of you with remaining eligibility will consider participating in our 2021 competition. Our new theme will be announced this summer and the official competition launch will coincide with the beginning of the new school year. Congratulations to all!

 


C-SPAN co-CEO Susan Swain congratulates the winning filmmakers of our annual StudentCam competition.

Due to school closings and travel restrictions related to COVID-19, this year marks the first time in 16 years of the competition that C-SPAN has been unable to physically present awards to the prize winning students but we want to recognize and thank all of the filmmakers for sharing their incredible work with us this year.
