Smith Team Wins C-SPAN Video Award

Smith C-Span Video Award Thursday was a big day at Smith Middle School. Jenae Green of C-SPAN stopped by to present three very special students with a StudentCam certificate of merit.

Eighth-graders Caroline Chen, Calvin Hinkle and Olivia Xiao finished in third place nationally in C-SPAN's annual student video documentary competition, StudentCam. A ceremony was held in the auditorium where classmates, teachers and family members could recognize this wonderful achievement and view the prized video, "Protection For All: The 14th Amendment.
" The video team also won $750.

“Congratulations to all of our local prize winners in C-SPAN's national StudentCam documentary competition – it’s a terrific recognition,” said Adam Falk, Senior Vice President, State Government Affairs, Charter Communications. “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.”
