C-SPAN’s StudentCam is an annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think seriously about issues that affect our communities and our nation. Students are asked to create a short (5-8 minute) video documentary on one of the country’s greatest strengths or a challenge the country is facing. The local cable company was Cox Communications.
