Every year since 2006, C-SPAN invited students to take part in a StudentCam video documentary competition and join in on the debate over the nation’s public policy issues. The theme for 2013 was, “What’s the most important issue the president should consider in 2013?” Out of more than 3,500 participants, five students earned top honors. Three of them participated in a roundtable discussion of why they chose their particular issue and more specifically why President Obama should make it his top priority. Two of the the students had chosen the economy as an issue, which was the top issue among all StudentCam entries. Josh Stokes won the grand prize with his video, Unemployment in America. Alan Shimp won first place in the high school section with his video, Free Candy. Parin Bhaduri, with his partners, Austin Hoag and Nalin Varma, won first place in the middle school section with their video, Public Transportation in the Nation. Their videos were shown. close
