Hello Da Vinci 6-8 Families,
Please see below for a student opportunity hosted by CSPAN and supported by Spectrum!
Have a Great Week!
Charter Communications, locally known as Spectrum is once again proud to support C-SPAN and its annual StudentCam documentary competition. With many students across the country adapting to a virtual or hybrid model of learning, StudentCam 2021 offers an opportunity for project-based learning that can be particularly rewarding for both teachers and students, regardless of the educational setting.
The competition invites middle and high school students to join the national conversation on the challenges our country is currently facing by creating a 5- to 6-minute documentary on this theme: Explore the issue you most want the president and new Congress to address in 2021. Next spring, the C-SPAN Education Foundation will award 150 student and 53 teacher prizes totaling $100,000.
To ensure students’ success in these challenging times, Spectrum is committed to help bridge the digital divide with enhanced measures that expand internet access and maintain connectivity for remote learners.
You can help inform teachers and students about StudentCam by sharing about the competition on social media (#StudentCam2021) or in conversations in your community.
We hope you’ll join us in getting the word out about C-SPAN’s StudentCam and how it serves as an innovative enrichment-learning experience well-suited to these unprecedented times. For more information on the competition, please visit www.studentcam.org.
