Nashoba Brooks Students Earn C-Span Recognition

Last Friday, representatives from C-SPAN and Comcast joined us at Nashoba Brooks School to celebrate our four winning teams in the 2018 C-SPAN StudentCam documentary competition.
C-SPAN received more entries this year than any other year in the competition’s 14 year history, with 2,985 films coming from students in 46 states, as well as abroad in Taiwan and the United Arab Emirates.

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.

This year students in grades 6-12 were asked to create a short (5-7 minute) video documentary on a topic related to the new 2018 competition theme, "The Constitution & You: Choose a provision of the U.S. Constitution and create a video illustrating why it's important to you."

Three of our four winning teams received Honorable Mentions and one team received the Third Place prize. The winning documentaries were: “The 1st Amendment, Protest + US” created by Lilly Brock, Ruby Massengale, and Laura Sackett; “Breaking the Border: The Complexities of Citizenship” by Anne Averill and Eliza Morton; “Incarceration Injustice” by Maeve Kennedy, Meaghan Sheehan, and Julia Zipoli; “The Right to Bear Arms” by Darline Desforge, Ashley Grant, and Mallory Thut. All of the projects were overseen by Lauren Funk, our C-SPAN project advisor and Grades 7 and 8 social studies teacher.

Each of the girls gave a brief presentation of their documentaries before receiving their certificates of recognition from the C-SPAN representative.

Thank you to C-SPAN, Comcast, and Lauren Funk for their orchestration and involvement, and thank you to everyone who joined us for the celebration!
