Engage with Educators and Elected Officials-
-Showcase your Commitment to Education-
-Encourage Local Students-

We’re kicking off the 15th year of StudentCam by asking middle and high school students to create a video on 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.”

Partnering with C-SPAN on StudentCam and sharing the competition with your community reinforces your commitment to education and gives another opportunity for you to get credit for providing C-SPAN as a public service. We encourage you to use StudentCam to connect with local educators who are looking for ways to challenge their students to think critically about issues of national importance and that affect your community.

To help with your outreach, take advantage of the easily-customizable resources found on our website including:

  • StudentCam announcement press release
  • Template letter for you to send to area educators introducing the contest
  • Template letter for you to send to local elected officials making them aware of StudentCam, your support of C-SPAN and this well-received educational initiative.
  • Social media ideas to help create interest and excitement
  • StudentCam image library — downloadable logos and an infographic that can easily be posted to your social media accounts
  • Customizable cross-channel spot for on-air or social media

If there are other resources that would be helpful to promote the competition in your community, please email Vanessa Torres at vtorres@c-span.org.

The C-SPAN Education Foundation awards 150 student and 53 teacher prizes, totaling $100,000 in cash. All winning entries will receive cash prizes ranging from $250-$5,000, and teachers who are listed as faculty advisers will have a chance to win cash prizes of up to $750.

Videos are due by January 20, 2019, and student winners will be announced in March. We look forward to partnering with you this spring to visit as many winning schools as possible to congratulate the students in front of their communities!

Start promoting StudentCam 2019 today!
