Bright House Networks applauds Alexandra Chandler, an eleventh grade student at Clearwater High School in Clearwater, Fla., on her second Prize place showing in C-SPAN’s national 2013 StudentCam competition. In response to the question, “What’s the most important issue the president should consider in 2013?” Alexandra produced “Guns In Our Schools,” a documentary about school safety and security.  Alexandra received $1500 for her work, which aired on C-SPAN in April of this year.

C-SPAN’s national StudentCam competition, now in its ninth year, invites middle school and high school students to produce a five- to- eight minute documentary on a national policy issue. This year, C-SPAN received 1,893 video submissions from more than 3,500 students in 44 states and Washington, DC.

Documentaries were judged by a panel of C-SPAN education representatives and evaluated based on the thoughtful examination of the competition’s theme, quality of expression, inclusion of varying sides of the documentary’s topic, and effective incorporation of C-SPAN programming.

Alexandra is one of 146 students from across the country winning a total of $50,000, including one Grand Prize winner, two First Prize winners, eight Second Prize winners, 16 Third Prize winners and 48 Honorable Mentions.  The 75 winning videos may be viewed at
