C-SPAN and its cable partners are pleased to announce our 2022 StudentCam theme. StudentCam is C-SPAN’s annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think critically about issues that affect our communities and our nation. Each year, C-SPAN awards $100,000 in cash prizes to the top 150 student produced films. We also award cash prizes to teachers if your students are recognized as winning one of the top 50 entries. For the 2021-2022 school year we are asking middle and high school students in grades 6-12 to create a 5-6 minute documentary on the following theme: How does the federal government impact your life? Explore a federal policy or program that has an impact on you or your community. Evaluate the effectiveness of this policy or program by researching multiple perspectives on it. More information can be found on the StudentCam website.
