Type: Foundations
Source: C-SPAN
Program: C-SPAN Student Cam Competition
Eligibility: The competition is open to all students in grades 6-12. Grades 6-8 compete in the Middle School category, and grades 9-12 compete in the High School category.

Middle School students will be judged nationally against their peers. High School students will be judged regionally against their peers in one of 3 regions (West/Central/East), based on their school state.

Students may compete individually, or in teams of either 2 or 3 members.

All documentaries must contain a small amount of supporting C-SPAN footage that relates to the chosen topic.

C-SPAN’s philosophy is to show varying sides of each issue. Winning StudentCam documentaries will also show a variety of points of view related to the chosen topic.

Documentaries must be between 5-7 minutes* (Note: new maximum time length). End credits, if applicable, may run longer than the 7 minute time frame.
