New Technology High School students Crysta Tim, Nicolo Bacialli and Theon Peters last week were awarded third prize in the National 2014 C-Span Student Cam competition for their documentary entitled “Protect the Electives.”

More than 4,800 students in 46 states and Washington, DC sent a total of 2,355 entries to C-SPAN this year.

Videos were evaluated by a panel of educators and C-SPAN representatives based on the thoughtful examination of the competition’s theme, quality of expression, inclusion of varying sides of the documentary’s topic, and effective incorporation of C-SPAN programming.

The New Tech students won a $750 cash prize in a special school assembly, and the C-Span educational bus was be on hand for students.

 The annual competition is sponsored by the C-SPAN Education Foundation.
