1st Place in the C-SPAN StudentCam contest out of 1,440 entries!

Our Television Production students at College Street Vocational Center found out today that they won 1st Place in the C-SPAN StudentCam contest out of 1,440 entries! Their names were announced on C-SPAN's Washington Journal program this morning and some of their footage was aired. They are Jason Boudreaux (Sam Houston 12th Grade), Jaleaha Joseph (Barbe 11th Grade) and Shontenaisha Manuel (Barbe 12th). 

 

Their story will air nationally on C-SPAN (which airs locally on Suddenlink) on Wednesday, April 20.

 

The three students are splitting the $3,000 prize money. 

 

Big thank you to Mr. Bruchhaus, Mayor Nic Hunter and filmmaker Michael McGowan for graciously sharing their time with the student team for in-depth interviews. That made a big difference in standing out with their submission.
