Jaiden Saran of McLean High School and Tara Prakash at Sidwell Friends School were jointly named an honorable-mention recipient in C-SPAN’s 2022 StudentCam competition.
Students around the world were invited to produce a short documentary that explored a federal policy or program and addressed the theme “How does the federal government impact your life?” More than 1,400 entries from students in middle and high school were submitted.
“The winners showcased exceptional research and production values as they wove personal stories with historical or contempoary issues,” said Craig McAndrew, director of C-SPAN education relations.
The Saran/Prakash entry focused on the U.S. Postal Service. They were among 300 students from across the nation to win cash prizes ranging from $250 to $5,000.
