The C-SPAN StudentCam competition is a way for students to do research on a civic issue of their choice and of their own interest. They have to learn to gather facts while citing their sources, and also gather opinions from experts.  They have to express the civic issue from different points of view. During the course of the project students learn to research, cite sources, interview others, creatively use technology, and ultimately tell a story.
