C-SPAN and Spectrum to honor local student documentary directors

C-SPAN and Spectrum will visit a variety of St. Louis region schools starting Wednesday to celebrate winners for C-SPAN’s annual student video documentary competition.

Both C-SPAN and Spectrum will celebrate students efforts in the documentary competition, StudentCam which announced the winners in March. During their visit both companies will present StudentCam certificates of merit to Clayton High School, Kirkwood High School, and Liberty High School on April 25.

Since 2006, the public affairs network has been partners with local cable providers in communities nationwide to invite middle school students and high school students to create short documentaries on a subject of national importance. This year, students addressed the theme, “The Constitution & You: Choose a provision of the U.S. Constitution and create a video illustrating why it’s important to you.”

According to C-SPAN, the company has received a record of 2,985 video submissions from over 5,700 students in 46 states and Washington, D.C. One hundred fifty students and 53 teacher prizes were awarded, totaling $100,000 in prize money.

Adam Falk, senior vice president, state government affairs at Charter Communications, praised the students’ efforts in the competition.

 “Congratulations to all of our local prize winners in C-SPAN’s national StudentCam documentary competition – it’s a terrific recognition,” Falk said in a written statement. “This year, C-SPAN’s StudentCam contest gave students the opportunity to learn more about and deeply appreciate the U.S. Constitution and its impact on our local community. We are proud to partner with them on this important initiative.”

In the St. Louis area, C-SPAN programming is provided by Spectrum as a commercial-free public service and can be seen in HD on channel 794; C-SPAN2 in HD on channel 795; and C-SPAN3 in HD on channel 796 and on the web at C-SPAN.org. Funding for C-SPAN operations, including Bus visits, is provided by cable and satellite TV providers.

  3. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone
    during lunch break. I really like the info you present here
    and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile ..
    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, superb blog!

  4. I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever
