While I was at the Cable Show 2009 (check out our Cable Show roundup for more posts from the show) I sat down with Joanne Wheeler from C-SPAN to talk about StudentCam. StudentCam is a competition in which students create 5 - 8 minute videos that answer a particular question. This year’s question was, ‘What is the most urgent issue for the new president to address after taking office, and why?’

A pretty big topic for middle school and high school students, but the 75 winners did a really great job. Check them all out here, and here are direct links to the three Comcast winners Joanne mentions:

  • ‘Job Loss: Weakening The American Economy’ from Eric Beeler
  • ‘Healthcare for all in our lifetime: An Impossible Dream?’ from Zachariah DeGiulio
  • ‘Health Care Viewpoints A Message to President elect Barack Obama’ from Robert Levinson
