C-SPAN's StudentCam Documentary Competition


C-SPAN's StudentCam is an annual national video documentary competition that encourages students in grades 6-12 to think about issues that affect our communities and our nation.

This year, students are being asked to create a short (5-7 minute) video documentary on a topic related to the theme "What does it mean to be American?" Choose a constitutional right, national characteristic, or historic event and explain how it defines the American experience. Videos should evaluate how this right, characteristic or event is upheld in our society, or challenged by current events. Rights or characteristics may include aspects of democracy, opportunity, liberty, justice, equality, diversity, unity, individualism, other rights, guiding principles, or shared values.

Students may compete individually or in teams of two or three. All films must contain supporting footage from C-SPAN that relates to the topic. Entries that show a variety of points of view will have a better chance of winning.

Prizes totaling $100,000 will be awarded to 150 student documentaries and 53 teacher advisors.

Entries due January 20, 2019.
