This fall, C-SPAN is offering middle and high school students a chance to create a 5 – 8 minute video documentary about this year’s topic: The Constitution and You. Students are asked to select any provision of the U.S. Constitution and create a video illustrating why it is important to them. Videos must reflect varying points of view on the topic and also include C-SPAN video that supports the topic.

Winners in both middle and high school categories receive cash prizes. And, teachers who are listed as a faculty advisor, can win equipment for their school. In all, C-SPAN will be awarding $50,000 in prizes, including a trip to Washington, DC for him/herself and a parent or guardian – including a VIP tour of the C-SPAN studios.

Entry forms and completed videos must be submitted online by January 20, 2012. Find out more information at
