Arundathi Nair and Sam Miller submitted a winning entry to StudentCam, C-SPAN’s annual video documentary competition for students across the country. A C-SPAN representative will present a StudentCam certificate of merit to Nair and Miller in front of family members, classmates, teachers and elected officials.
The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at Laramie Junior High School.
This year’s competition saw nearly 6,000 students in 45 states and Washington, D.C. submit 2,887 5-7 minute videos on the topic “Road to the White House: What’s the issue YOU most want candidates to discuss during the 2016 presidential campaign?”
A total of $100,000 in prize money was awarded to 150 students and 53 teachers. All of this year’s winning videos can be seen at www.studentcam.org.
During Tuesday’s Laramie visit, teachers and students can experience the American political process as showcased through multimedia technology aboard the C-SPAN Bus.
The C-SPAN Bus has been traveling the country for over 22 years, promoting C-SPAN’s coverage of the American political process by partnering with local cable providers.
