C-SPAN honors HVA, FMS students


Representatives of C-SPAN came to Farragut Middle School and Hardin Valley Academy to honor local student winners of StudentCam 2011.

StudentCam is an annual documentary competition that encourages students to create short films about political and public policy matters. This year’s theme — “Washington, DC, Through My Lens” — asked middle- and high-school students to address issues directly impacting their communities.

In addition to the ceremonies at both schools congratulating students on their first, second, third and honorable mention Prizes, which in total came with prizes of $9,250 at Farragut Middle School and $250 at Hardin Valley Academy, students at both schools learned more about the C-SPAN mission and the online C-SPAN Video Library.
